The approach for Leeton Pointon’s Park House was to seamlessly integrate all elements of interiors, architecture, furnishings, decoration and landscape.
Organic shapes and curved soft plastered walls house a considered selection of artworks, materials, forms and textures. The palette and detailing in the Park House is purposefully restrained and selected with materiality in mind. Subtle nuances differentiate each space throughout the house, and their individual uses: from a more robust and relaxed approach in the children’s living areas to more refined selections in the ‘good room’.
Seamless transitions are maintained throughout the various interior spaces, as well as between the internal and external elements of the project. Skylights have been utilised to wash walls with light from above, while furniture, furnishings, lighting and decorative items have been selected for each space – with a focus on form and finish, as well as comfort and integrity in design.
The Park House is the outcome of profound respect between collaborators on the project, with liaison between the client and team seamless and integral to the success of the project. The result is a comfortable, inviting and very liveable family home.
