Luxurious Sydney Residence – An Interior Delight
Architect Andre Baroukh and interior designer Darren Genner of Minosa used numerous large panels of high-performance glass, off-form concrete, sandstone and Corian® Solid surfaces. As an integral part of any residential design, the kitchen needs to be welcoming and highly efficient — a place where the family can spend time together and enjoy being in the space. As the kitchen is the first thing to be seen after walking through the front door, it had to have a wow factor and using seamless Corian® surfaces for the benchtop and featured upstand achieved that outcome beautifully!
The timber veneer cupboards conceal two fridges, a dumbwaiter, an everyday home office and a secret glassware cabinet. Two pods either side of the oven house tea and coffee machines, kitchen paraphernalia, even a Corian® benchtop and its own internal drawers. These electronically controlled zones “with a touch of a button are completely concealed in the joinery adding a touch of James Bond-like class to this space,” says Darren.
As if it is a part of the building’s structure, the rock face offers an organic and rich aesthetic. “Bifold doors were designed to fold away so that during the warmer months, these doors could be open to create amazing cross-ventilation but to also connect with nature taking a cleansing shower (Corian® Shower walls and floor) — one’s own private wellness retreat,” says Darren.
“Each wall was clad in mirror to refract the view and the light. These two central walls define the bathing space from the sleeping and dressing areas without obstructing the flow or outlook,” says Darren.
Extra storage is included in the bed head, as well as in the side of the 1.2m-wide walls wrapped in a custom-made Corian® wash basin.
Cool in it’s sophistication and calm in its appeal Corian® shower walls and floors are warm and sensual to the touch and with no grout… it’s very easy to clean, making it perfect for this environment.
Corian® vanity bowl is integrated with timber to give the bathrooms a stylish finish.
