GOLD PIN Rich­mond Hill House by Be­spoke In­te­rior De­sign

This home sit­u­ated on the ex­treme slope of Christchurch’s Rich­mond Hill bal­ances raised lev­els with sunken liv­ing spa­ces that open to breath­tak­ing vis­tas. Space plan­ning played a key role in the client’s brief, as the view needed to be vis­i­ble from every room.

The ex­te­rior deck is an an­chor of in­ter­ac­tion for the en­tire up­per floor, while large slid­ing doors con­nect the liv­ing and din­ing spa­ces with the bed­rooms. Stone, tim­ber and mild steel are some of the ma­te­ri­als used, com­ple­mented by a sub­tle colour pal­ette that in­cludes oyster white and black stained oak. An eggshell sealed mar­ble ap­pears in both the kitchen and bath­rooms, cre­at­ing a co­he­sive, un­com­pli­cated aes­thetic. The de­sign­ers also used aged-iron tap­ware to forge a clever con­nec­tion with the mild-steel fire­place; it’s soft­ened with warm grey staine­doak floor­ing and sheer nat­u­ral linen cur­tains.

“Rich, so­phis­ti­cated and holis­tic, the con­trast be­tween the crisp lines and the soft­ness of the fin­ishes is ex­cep­tional,” said the awards judges.
