The Esplanade by Golden
Set to embrace the backdrop of the bay, Golden have re-created the shell of an 80s style house into a warm, contemporary four-bedroom, five-bathroom family home referencing the organic qualities of the coast throughout.
Inspired by its coastline location and the clients desire for a light and timeless feel, careful consideration and selection of natural materials and robust textures were employed. Upon entering the home, visitors are welcomed into a grand foyer featuring high ceilings and Andorra Limestone flooring, the addition of colour through the Crown Armchairs by Massproductions adds warmth and texture to the tonal space. A key design transformation was the removal of the existing ornate staircase, opening up each level with a unique vertical balustrade, a grand circular form, hugged by curved concrete walls, mimicking textural elements of a sea shell. The space now flooded with light and views through each level, affords multiple beautiful moments from every angle. Large scale floor finishes imitate poured concrete, adding warmth and durability to the home.
Creating the perfect balance of light, warmth and texture into each space, Golden have implemented a contrasting palette to each living spaces that effortlessly flows into one another, connecting the outdoor terrace and front living zone to the main living spaces. In one zone, dark timber battens conceal the television conscious to not disrupt the bay views, while a lighter second lounge room provides contrast, where blonde timbers and skylights create an airy place to sit. In keeping with the natural, lasting material palette, minimal marbles, tiles, and colours create a sense of organic luxury.
Complimented by a considered material selection, the living area features large scale sculptural furniture, Living Divani Sofa, custom silk rug by Halcyon Lake and a bespoke 4m length dinning table from Lowe Furniture. Soft pendant lighting adds touches of brass and textured linens add softness to the space, while juxtaposing the elements of a coastline.
The Esplanade is an enduring family home; organic in texture and low in maintenance, the resulting design seeks to balance the soft and fluid with the strong and long lasting.
