For this project we worked very closely with our client Sarah to help with the reconfiguration of the east wing of her family home to create one large master suite, which included a dressing area, wellness suite and sleeping quarters.
Within the new master suite we looked at the possibilities for an area to work as a home office, but concluded a quiet wellness suite to relax, unwind, chill and contemplate free from the pollution of technology and the outside world would be by far more beneficial, and an ideal area to disconnect from the outside world.
The wellness suite was designed with a nod to Japanese daily bathing rituals, with a very large walk-in shower with a drying area to avoid wetness, a sliding opaque privacy screen in a traditional Japanese style opens to reveal a tranquil space with a double wash bowl configuration.
The whole concept of the room was built around a Duravit Whirltub spa bath which would be built within a specially-made window so one could look out over the paddock whilst bathing in true Japanese fashion.
Using a bathtub cover, the concept was to transform the bath into a practical storage area which doubled as a relaxation deck. However project constraints meant that the bathtub had to be excluded from the design but this does not detract from the look which was achieved.
Sarah’s colour scheme included dramatic painted black walls which are a perfect backdrop to showcase the designer metallic champagne matching radiators and teams beautifully with the large format porcelain floor tiles.
"Kuche & Bagno had great ideas on making the whole interior flow, sourcing new products to help the whole house flow together."- Sarah
The look was completed by the beautiful Balterio herringbone style laminate flooring throughout the master suite which lends a real heritage feel.
We completed the cube concept by introducing a pocket door for the restroom. This was located closer to the sleeping quarters and featured wall hung WC furniture and basin.
NOTES FROM THE DESIGNER
Working with Sarah is always a dream, for us as designers creative juices flow in abundance and Sarah loves innovation experimentation and bespoke elements. Details on this project included wardrobes perfectly camouflaged using wallpaper and a fabulous parquet floor.
