Oak and marble flooring in the living areas contrast with off-shutter concrete, and stone or timber wall cladding to create harmony between warm and cold, hard and soft. These layers of texture create a sense of relaxed family living, and yet the space still feels sophisticated. The natural elements are also referenced in the large fireplaces in the living areas and a water feature that visitors move 'through' as they arrive at the entrance.
That dining area and living room leads out to the pool, deck and a fire pit surrounded by timber seating. 'It
is the pivot of the house. Perfect to unwind. A wine room with custom-designed laser-cut sliding metal doors, a feature of this space, leads directly off this area.
Feature lighting has been used to dramatic effect in this home, with black lights from Tom Dixon's Beat Light series adding glamour to the formal dining room, while the large Random Lights by
Bertjan Pot for Moooi make a dramatic statement in the bedroom. These work well with the subtle lighting that the architectural team incorporated into the feature bulkheads.
Finishes in timber, textured leathers, raw linens and glass add to the overall feeling of understated luxury that is both contemporary and timeless.
