The interiors defer the striking landscape and subtly merge with it to create a seamless relationship between the interior built form and nature.

The residence is a weekend beach house for a semi retired couple with a large family and extensive corporate guests. The house was designed to entertain large amounts of guests for parties and extended stays.

FMD architects inherited the concept deign prepared by Tony Hobba Architects and was engaged to develop the interior and architectural details for the project.

An interior landscape is created which merges into the surrounding external landscape. Materials and colours are drawn from the local environment and counterbalance the intense blue ocean hues. Natural timbers, local stone, textures tiles and muted stones are selected to mimic the surrounds. Selected paint and tile colours reflect the deep oranges and reds found in the local stone and local flora.

The interiors defer the striking landscape and subtly merge with it to create a seamless relationship between the interior built form and nature. The house is grand in scale, yet the spaces are relaxed yet sophisticated, modular and flexible. The balanced selection of imported and local furniture, lighting and materials celebrates the quality of local design within a global design environment.
