Dramatic colour story that reflects the surrounding headland landscape
Coastal Headland :this story is about dramatic colour. Its sophisticated and meditative .The family of four wanted a strong statement to reflect the surrounding landscape
The single story apartment is situated on a coastal headland between the bay & ocean and interacts with the dramatic depth of colours and form of such a landscape .
We’ve included Porters Paint rusted pillars ,dark blue and deep green walls
Large scale paintings add abstract elements layer the rooms with a rich patina .
The living area has a feature ethanol marble fireplace with a tall fluted timber chimney .The marble bench generously extends the width of the wall . Muted tones interact :a dark green floor rug , charcoal sofa , small black side tables and black & white checkered ottoman playfully contrast in shape and colour with Louise Tuckwells’ vertical vibrant colour field painting .
The indoor living areas and bedrooms flow to 2x organic outdoor spaces at either end of the apartment .
The rear exterior courtyard is built at the foot of tall sandstone rock formations which create height and natural privacy .This courtyard is clad in beautiful hanging gardens and a large floor level trough .The walls and trough are painted in a deep green black which highlight the garden of succulents , exotic plants and variegated plantings .The children’s two bedrooms open onto this peaceful organic courtyard
