The kitchen reflects and caters to the clients’ love for hosting guests. A monolithic island references the exterior of the home, while an adjacent bar is cleverly concealed within the joinery, taking the entertainer’s kitchen from day to night. Verpan Series 430 chairs upholstered in decadent grey velvet are a nod to the Hollywood regency style prevalent throughout the home, balanced with a contemporary timber dining table.
Ebonised timber cladding finds its way from the kitchen and dining to the formal lounge; a further emphasis to the materiality of the facade. The home is designed with a compartmentalised layout instead of an open-plan, so it was important the materials carried through the spaces could provide a link from one to the next. “We wanted to ensure there was continuity and flow created through the harmonious transition between spaces, materials and detailing, so instead of each room having a different detail, we ensured that a finish would connect each space in a subtle way,” Alicia says.
