Light, bright and calm; these were the words used by the client when giving the brief for their dream home to Techné Architecture + Interior Design. Responding to this, and taking into consideration the owners lifestyle of entertaining and good living (plus one small child), the designers conceived the program that added courtyards to both the front and rear of the home adding an immediate link between the house the world beyond, an giving the interior an instant injection of light and bright.
Calm was achieved through a muted materials palate and ranges between warm greys and soft whites, pale timbers and graphic stone for the kitchen and bathroom. A shot of drama was created with the new powder room with its monochromatic palm leaf wallpaper.
As told by Techné, they “envisioned a space that would exude a sense of lightness and bring calm to those within it” and they have achieved that in spades.
