Combining the minimalistic design of the home with featured floating bulkheads, vast expanse of glazing and floating detailed concrete staircase, the carefully selected colour palette, materials and finishes for this home with design decision to portray a contemporary resort style feeling and soften the spaces. The conscious use of a warmer palette for the white walls, selected marble bench tops, timber bench and cabinetry, the textured tiles in the bathrooms, sheer drapery, limestone wall etc. combined with the selectively curated furniture have allowed this to come to life.
