‘The most immediately eye-catching element is the stone, meticulously selected for its intricate patterning, which is a little reminiscent of ikat fabrics, an Aboriginal landscape painting or the contour lines on a geological map.’

A request for an all-white kitchen posed a challenge for us as it needed to retain a sense of warmth, in keeping with the rest of the house. We managed to achieve this largely through the choice of materials, attention to detail, careful planning and the use of divergent elements. With its rich texture and pattern, the marble we used for benchtops and splashback is absolutely key, and provides an interesting contrast with the panelled joinery, with its elegant simplicity. To avoid the island dominating the space, we designed it as a piece of stand-alone furniture, with fine legs and a narrow profile. And, as a foil to the heavy-duty industrial oven and cooktop, the rangehood is deliberately minimal in style.

The brief for the ensuite bathroom was that it complement the glamorous main bedroom. To do so, we borrowed space from an adjoining bedroom to give it a greater sense of scale, and designed the two rooms to read as one – open plan and sharing identical palettes. We designed the bathroom to be far more than a functional space – along with other enticing elements, the sculptural chandelier above the vanity elevates the room into something entirely special and unique.
