Throughout, lightweight brass and metal accents fuse industrial strength and practicality with an opulent finish. A custom piece by jeweller and designer, Brenton Angel, illuminates a shelved corner within the study. Tethered to ceiling and floor, the thread-like brass fixture securing an elongated neon tube casts warmth upon the pale citrus lemon plaster wall, instantly expanding the confines of the room. Within the kitchen, perforated steel armatures float above the central stairwell to support potted greens. Joinery located beneath bench height facilitates open sightlines across to the lounge area.
Adjoining the lounge’s fireplace, black ash open shelving enables the corner to recede into undefined depth. A lithe folded curtain of translucent pale green fibreglass matching the dining wall’s bracing (also by Angel) counterbalances its recessive nature. Positioned in an angled upright position, it gently glistens in the sunlight. Defining the dining area, another custom fibreglass shield by Angel lines the rear wall. Its curved return is bracketed by a vertical neon globe that pools depth behind its glacial surface. One end of the custom oak dining bench subtly echoes its contour. Hugging the rounded edge of the table, it eliminates the need to enclose the space structurally.
The master bedroom’s densely mottled fibre cement sheet walls usher a sense of utmost quiet. Within, a rich sapphire armchair glows like an oversized precious stone mined from the site.
