Generosity of space as the ultimate luxury and the seamless interconnection of spaces were the inspiration for this penthouse design. While the interior design and decoration epitomises contemporary living, the clients admiration of 1950s simplicity in design style formed the foundation.
Day to day practicalities for the family, such as robust materials and an abundance of seamlessly incorporated storage, were paramount in the design. Maintaining a predominantly cool palette juxtaposed the sub-tropical Brisbane climate, but layered with natural and neutral tones in recognition of the instinctive yearning for warmth. Purist ideals are reflected in all design and decorative forms in the home.
Working with Edra from the start, Italian designer Francesco Binfaré has produced some of the brand's classics, including the recent Pack and Chiara sofa.
