Evoking a connection to Rose Seidler Hose – Harry Seidler’s famed 1950s home designed by the architect for his mother, the sinuous connection from the exterior to interior induces an earthy feel balanced by the site’s laidback Australian modernist architecture. Extensive use of curves and soft edges further promotes a sense of visual flow and ease.
The surrounding bushland governed the selection of interior materials and finishes. TMH employ rich, golden brown mosaic hues and deep forest green for the kitchen cabinetry – the rich palette complements the site’s natural bushland setting abundant in flora and fauna, delivering a unified space from the inside out.
Tiled surfaces throughout, terrazzo floors and countertops in the bathrooms, spherical wall lights and an arched amber rippled glass door bring moments of joy and playfulness to the design. It is the use of colour and texture which provides a cohesive connection throughout the Wahroonga House, delivering a laidback and sophisticated refuge.
