Darling Point Apartment
Clean Lines of Corian® bring refined bespoke luxury
to a Darling Point Apartment
When an award winning interiors professional creates a bathroom for a client who’s design-savvy, the results are guaranteed to be spectacular. Chenchow Little Architects was asked to create something ‘beyond the norm’ when renovating a waterfront apartment in Darling Point, Sydney. The homeowners were seeking a design with a degree of formality, embedded with a sense of surprise. Chenchow Little Architects took inspiration from existing architectural features inside and outside the 1970’s apartment block. The faceting geometry that featured on the exterior was integrated throughout the design, along with the selected custom colours (Corian® Beach Glass and Corian® Tea Rose) being inspired by the colour palette used in a mural by artist Esther Stewart that is installed in the entrance of the apartment. The colours help to create a distinct identity for each bathroom and the apartment.
Corian® Colours of Distinction
To bring the design to life, Corian® was used extensively throughout the two bathrooms and kitchen, including being used for the floors and walls in the bathrooms and en suite as well as the shower and bath. Offering unlimited design possibilities and seamless, non-porous qualities, Corian® was able to be custom designed into the free-flowing curves of the walls, floors, benchtops, bath and basins. Providing a seamless finish, as well a contemporary look and freshness, the colour palette helped create a distinct identity in each room.
Thermoformed to Create limitless Design Possibilities
Corian® can be thermoformed to create various, limitless design possibilities which enabled Chenchow Little Architects to offer bespoke designs to fit perfectly with the rest of the apartment. Keen to deliver a space ‘beyond the norm’, designers also created mirror panels on the walls framing a Corian® seamless basin. As well as making the room brighter, they break up the blocks of Corian® and help to conceal the pipework which adds further ambience without dominating the overall aesthetic.
