South Yarra Residence is a celebration of classic contemporary design. The design creates an understated first impression and a resonant natural materiality, achieved through the use of stone, timber and woven art. Throughout the interior, quality raw materials in a soft, natural palette and pale, polished plaster are contrasted by light-capturing metallic pieces. Moments of glamour created by soft wall lights throw a warm glow across the walls in the evening, reflecting in the bowls and gold framed artwork. The form of the staircase, light, volume and spatial relationships inspire the interior decoration, selected materials and use of natural colours achieves textural depth. There are designed places for the clients own collections of objects, treasures gathered whilst on travels, and carefully chosen furniture pieces for each space. South Yarra Residence is a functional, liveable design with quality, robust materials that will retain functionality and aesthetic appeal over time.
