Traversing Worlds, From Room to Room
This concept is, fundamentally, an experiment in light, colour, texture and space. We set out to create a journey that takes one through a series of feasts for the senses as one travels from one section of the house to another, with each room being a distinct sensory experience.
In this sense, each room is a self-contained space, with its own unique qualities, energy and purpose.
After all, not all journeys are measured in miles.
Space for Freedom
The open-plan layout allows the dining room, the living room and the kitchen to flow seamlessly into one another, creating a sense of fluidity. The use of whites and greys keeps the vibe light and airy throughout the house, adding to the space a sense of openness and freedom.
This is crucial as the structure of the house is designed with intimacy and exclusivity in mind. With the floor-length windows in the dining room being the sole source of natural light and ventilation, it’s easy to end up with a space that feels secluded and limiting.
It’s about finding the middle ground between privacy and possibility, by joining several different sections of the house and making sure the transition between each is smooth and seamless, to create a space that is open and inviting.
All in all, a space crafted with growth in mind.
Room for Personality
We wanted every room and section in the house to be a unique experience of its own, distinguishing in both form and function. The boundaries between the sections are simultaneously dissolved and redefined through the thoughtful use of space and materials, which allows them to retain their own identity in spite of being part of a greater whole.
The living room, for example, is largely dominated by white and light grey shades that serve to create an illusion of space. This is further enhanced by the use of clean, crisp lines, both horizontal and vertical. The overall mood is calm and sleek, reinforced by the juxtaposition of marble against matte black. A similar concept can be found in the master bedroom, as well, which sports an even mix of matte greys and whites, gold metallic accents as well as floor-length mirrors to visually expand the space.
As soon as one crosses over into the dining room, however, the ambience undergoes a dramatic change. An entirely different theme reigns there – rich earth tones and wood textures that cover whole walls; floor-length windows through which the sunlight filters in; with a wall fixture bursting with fresh, verdant flora functioning as the centrepiece.
The centrepiece, in particular, plays an extremely important role in establishing the ambiance. It adds life and vitality to the otherwise modern space, imbuing it with a sense of peace and serenity that is calming, soothing and reinvigorating.
The shift in mood is a pronounced one, yet the difference is not stark. It’s about keeping each space distinctive and independent, while remaining perfectly integrated to bring about a balance between openness and privacy. In short, it is a quest for the best of both worlds.
Designed to Delight
Every aspect of the space is crafted with intent, with every placement carefully calculated and every material well thought out to ensure the finest sensory experience.
A Touch of Luxury
We go for nuanced suggestions of finesse rather than showy, flashy statements of opulence. It’s all in the details – carefully selected artworks, marble textured surfaces, and subtle metallic accents that add just the right amount of class and style. The result is a stroke of elegance that is at once impactful and understated – tastefully splendid, and simply sophisticated.
A Dash of Colours
The colour scheme is composed mainly of neutral colours – white, black and varying shades of grey – with splashes of more vivid hues carefully placed throughout the house. This dramatic contrast serves not only to solidify the aesthetic identity of each room and section, but helps keep the colours from competing visually with the varied host of textures employed throughout the house as well.
