I am absolutely crushing on the Cronulla House by Amber Road.
Amber Road is a Sydney based design collective dedicated to making inspiring & unique 'inside and outside' spaces, large and small.
They have designed everything from an entire urban park precinct, to a beautiful bespoke lamp, and everything in between. Their aim is to create places and objects that truly reflect their client’s values - with considered, bold concepts and clever detailing, built on robust foundations.
The clients brief for the Cronulla House was 'to keep it as unpretentious and simple as possible'. The end design celebrated a warm minimalism, the uncluttered and the imperfect. A 10m long concrete bench was installed and aimed to bridge the two living areas and encourage a more engaging experience for the end user.
"It feels iconically Australian. It has sophisticated colour and the material combination are very successful. The use of a few beautifully resolved large gestures anchors the overall interior scheme for this house building on this, the interiors are then sensitively and artfully layered to make a visually original home but one with comforting and erudite references to the twentieth century and the particularities of Australian modernism "
