Amber Road redesigned an existing three bedroom cottage located in Cronulla, Sydney, Australia.
The clients brief was ‘to keep it as unpretentious and simple as possible’. Drawing on Wabi Sabi principles, the design celebrated a warm minimalism, the uncluttered and the imperfect. Iconic pieces were selected for their sculptural qualities and impeccable craftsmanship. A 10m long concrete bench 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
