Ma­te­rial World


Luxe yet un­der­stated, the ma­te­rial pal­ette is dom­i­nated by leather, stone and dark wood­grains. “An acid-washed mar­ble was used through­out the first level of the house, from the en­trance to the kitchen. This Mid­night For­est mar­ble is an ex­pres­sive mar­ble with its wild veins and speck­led tex­ture,” Kun says. On the first level, the slabs are used in tran­si­tional spa­ces or as fea­ture el­e­ments. The mar­ble slabs can be seen on the walls and kitchen counter of the dry kitchen. Grey streaks flow across these mar­ble slabs, adding vi­brancy to the dark wood and white sur­faces. Over in the wet kitchen, stain­less steel is used in­stead for prac­ti­cal­ity. The choice of ma­te­ri­als was just one of the ways that Ar­chi­tol­ogy In­te­ri­ors gave at­ten­tion to the home’s walls and ceil­ings. The tim­ber ceil­ing is an ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ment that pro­vides warmth and vis­ual in­ter­est to the space. Fea­ture lights were in­stalled to bring at­ten­tion to spa­ces. A project that took five months to com­plete, this house now fea­tures con­sis­tent and well-matched in­ner and outer char­ac­ter­is­tics. “It was chal­leng­ing and cer­tainly en­joy­able to an­a­lyse all the con­straints of the cur­rent house crit­i­cally, and solve it with all the de­sign tools by mak­ing min­i­mum nips and tucks and giv­ing it max­i­mum im­pact,” Kun says. “We took the client’s ba­sic points and went on to de­velop a full de­sign scheme that an­a­lysed the prop­erty’s con­straints and po­ten­tials. The de­sign process of Ar­chi­tolog y is al­ways to in­ject a strong ar­chi­tec­ture space within its in­te­rior de­signs. We be­lieve that good in­te­rior de­sign should be about bridg­ing ar­chi­tec­tural spa­ces with an in­ti­mate touch.”
