Rose Bay Residence, Sydney
Drawing upon the curvilinear inflections of this spaciously designed solid concrete home, timber joinery in the main entrance, kitchen, lounge area and study enhances its organic flow through consistent references.
Comfort and amenity keenly describe the functional appeal of this custom-built residence. Beyond the solid American Oak double front door customised with tubular solid brass handles, the light-filled kitchen is seamlessly recessed within a flat dividing façade with ample storage facilities concealed behind its slick snow white Corian surface. A custom-built island bench with undulating rhythms at play divides the dining area from this strip of linear uniformity. Its smooth Crown-Cut Oak veneer base recesses to accommodate stools before gently following the sweep of the benchtop’s curvature with one perfectly executed peel-like stroke.
Other organic touches include Élan’s re-iteration of its popular Grid shelving unit framing two walls of the lounge room in solid Oak. Exposed angular shelves indented with books and ceramics permit glints of colour to animate the low-lit space, whilst cupboards comb their base. Upstairs, a built-in study combs the wall of the first level landing with floor-to-ceiling solid Oak cabinets and a desk nook. Its lines merge towards a rounded apex for a refined edge, subtly referencing the curved sweep of the feature staircase bound by a ribbon of carved Oak.
