Drawing on the surrounding rural landscape, the designers at Fabrikate have thoughtfully captured the natural tones of this home’s surrounds. Housing a young family (and an array of animals), this relaxed Adelaide Hills property facilitates the client’s goals of living simply and cohesively in a changing environment.
Within the home, spacious rooms become individual retreats with each playing a different seasonal role. Natural light bathes the interiors and large floor to ceiling panoramic windows capture the enduring landscape. Inside, spaces evoke an honest aesthetic from an emphasis on sustainable timber joinery, an organic palette and considered textural elements.
The hub of the country home speaks directly to the vista with the kitchen and dining areas perfectly fulfilling the requirements and practicalities of life. A meticulously designed timber kitchen pulls together the space and is refined with a seamless raw concrete benchtop and stunning pendants. Adjacent, the custom timber dining table and inviting Mattiazzi Branca chairs complete with leather seats finesse the open plan dining area.
Stepping into the living area the feeling of the surrounds is abundant while subtle furnishing dictates the decor. The timber cladding to the ceiling is spectacular and provides a real sense of warmth within the room – a beautifully resolved selection. A splattering of pattern in the cushions and floor rug adds just the right amount of layering and temperature to the design. The Oblica fireplace, a standout piece, sits proudly by the window and with its glorious organic shape softens the modern façade.
Moving through the home, the bedrooms sit comfortably in the floorplan with the main featuring a sublime custom leather and timber bed. The views from both are serene while the decorating success is in the balancing act between the space inside and out. One can never outdo the other and the Fabrikate team have respectfully adhered to this design mantra. In the bathroom, textural tiles by Artedomus adorn the walls providing a dramatic backdrop to the custom designed oak vanity. This piece speaks volumes with its attractive natural grain and classic composition.
This home is a testament to the client’s clear brief and also to that of a great collaboration with their architect and designers. Fabrikate have considered detail, balance and enduring design practicalities in equal measure while allowing the hills landscape to fuse into the interiors.
