This covetable ocean view Sydney home designed by Space Control has the cool factor. One of it’s draw card features is the stunning kitchen detailed with v-groove polar white curved island and back bench, along with American Walnut veneer full height cabinets, detailed by a solid walnut trim., brought to life by Bondi Kitchens.
Sublime ink-blue veined ’Calacatta Statuario’ is featured throughout the project, with the striking Artedomus ’Smetaldo’’ green quartzite for the bar.
Q&A with Cressida Kennedy, director of Space Control
What was the client brief?
The brief was to bring this Coogee beach house to its maximum potential as it was in desperate need of a complete makeover and to introduce a sense of a playful contemporary style to the interiors that related to the client’s beach lifestyle.
Do you have a favourite room?
The first floor living (parent’s retreat) I like the open planning living that is focused around the marble fireplace along with the feature American Walnut and brass bar for entertaining. The house has amazing natural light and this space captures it beautifully.
What were your design objectives for the project?
To create a house that had a strong design direction but was still a liveable family home – not too perfect. Where the kids could come directly from the beach and feel relaxed to use the features and furniture in the house. Solid American Walnut Timber joinery is combined with a minimalist white colour palette that contributes to the laid back coastal atmosphere created within the home.
How would you describe the style of the home?
The Coogee beach house is richly layered with numerous bespoke interior elements that add fun, joy and intrigue, whilst the design creates a new visual language for the family home.
