Vein of riches
“Low-maintenance and minimal” was the goal for the busy young family that resides in this home. Open and flexible, the interior plan is oriented to a northern aspect and pool. Dark cabinetry and honed concrete floors work beautifully with the serene kitchen’s black-green granite. “The slabs of stone had been sitting in the factory for a while as the unusual colour wasn’t that popular,” says architect Simone Robeson. “It was a great find because it suits the palette perfectly. I love the consistent veining across the splashback and rangehood.” Dark cabinetry extends into the rear cellar, while a rear pantry and coffee area remove the need for overhead storage.
