Double Bay House I

Gadigal Country / Double Bay

The Double Bay House has an intentionally simplistic interior palette of finishes. This allows for the interior design elements to be generated from the architecture. It also allows the interior elements to blend with and complement the exterior architectural finishes and features. Light timber veneer is used extensively throughout the main spaces as a juxtaposition to the darker timber species used externally. Bookcases and other storage elements float on the walls and are sculpturally designed so the negative spaces created by the joinery are as important as the storage spaces themselves. The kitchen sits comfortably below a large, curved feature skylight which not only allows natural light deep into the floor plate but also creates a back drop for the dining room.
