Tweed Terrace House challenges typical Gold Coast architecture. Comprised of two pods, the unique home was conceived by Mexican architect Javier Senosiain and made reality by Raunik Design Group. The process has taken over 3 years but has resulted in a home that is now a local landmark.
An organic design sees the home in conversation with the surrounding landscape, using a language of curves rather than angles. The futuristic design language is continued inside where custom joinery and finishes create a bespoke space. Soft and free flowing, the home sits in contrast to the sharp lines and angles of the surrounding high rises, instead taking cues from sea.
The innovative craftsmanship continues inside the home. Corian® has been used extensively in the living quarters pod. “We wanted a product that looks like it flows with the curved walls and emerge from wall. We wanted it to have its own form and dissipate in its own way.” – Scott Bowden, Project Leader, Raunik Design Group.
Corian® has allowed a seamless, curved and organic finish. The colour selections have been made mindfully to suit the rooms and their purpose. The bathrooms see Antarctica finished to a gloss level for the curved vanity tops with integrated basins yet a smooth, matte finish for the bed surround and shelves, evoking a sense of calm in Glacier White.
Technically, the designs have called for expert fabricator with complex curves and thermoforming throughout. Prototypes were made to really test the material performance as well as ergonomics and depths of basins. The resulting installation is of impeccable quality with the client exceptionally pleased with the finished home.
