These clients have an already strikingly lovely home, designed to engulf the outdoors and its surroundings. However, the bathrooms, laundry and walk in robe spaces were not fulfilling their desired aesthetic and functional requirements. The clients expressed their practical concerns first with wanting spaces that had significant storage, were easy to clean and maintain and they wanted to ensure that each area was carefully designed for maximum functionality.
Given the existing industrial look that these rooms had, the client’s brief was to incorporate an overall classic, warm yet artistic welcoming feel throughout the spaces, whilst maximising light. The hero of these spaces are the stunning Italian white porcelain floor tiles that have a striking cobalt blue aggregate mixed throughout, emulating terrazzo.
Being constantly on the go and travelling the globe, there were many design considerations incorporated for this lifestyle, such as the lower storage robe drawers which also doubles as an area to place luggage and pack for the next morning’s flight. Directly above this space, hooks were also installed for suit and coat storage.
The customised ensuite shaving cabinets have internal power outlets to allow for charging of shavers and electric toothbrushes out of sight, complete with mood lighting in between to for indulging in a long bath in their ensuite that bit more special.
The custom white oval mirror in the walk in robe was created to tie in with the adjoining ensuite, with the shape of the mirror echoing the double vanities and shape of the bath and thus creating a relationship between the spaces.
Contrasting tapware makes a statement, while the tiled skirting around the edge of the rooms is a small yet powerful symbol of the level of design detail executed throughout this project.
