Once again the revealing and robust materials that define
the home are key in the bathroom, which makes use of recycled
Vietnamese concrete tiles, recycled cement tiles, blackened steel
and recycled timbers. It even incorporates an etched glass panel
from The Rose of South Yarra Hotel, a preserved feature from
the former residence. The vibrant bathroom is cantilevered over
the internal void of the house and is glazed to allow shadowy
glimpses both in and out.
The ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom draws
inspiration from New York loft-style spaces. While small in size,
the bathroom is filled with natural light and packs a punch with
the use of blackened steel, recycled spotted gum timber and
stainless steel in the vanity, which sits in contrast to a cobalt
blue wall tile. The unique addition of an outdoor shower located
on a private balcony can be accessed directly from the bedroom,
and completes the relaxed vibe of the vibrant washroom.
It’s the combination of authentic design, interconnectedness
of space and unconventional use of materials that creates
a liberating feeling in the kitchen and bathrooms of this unique
home. Inviting, stimulating but never completely knowable,
the spaces are never short on providing visual appealing
glimpses of design quirks that keep you intrigued.
This project was the winner in eight categories at the 2013
BDAV awards, including Building Design of the Year. Wilson iD
