HASSELL was approached to create the interior of a new house designed by Robert Mills Architects.
Having established a design direction a collaborative process was undertaken to review relevant aspects of the architecture, with the goal to create a fully integrated house from the inside out.
The owners sought to distinguish their house as an urban model within the leafy surrounding context of Melbournes Toorak.
The design expresses a spatial simplicity, in which rooms are interconnected and their functions amplified. Sculptural gestures, such as the central spiral staircase and over sized joinery units, heighten both the scale and a dynamic lifestyle. In essence, this project is a pure exploration in an uncompromising minimalist language.
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.
