Warrawee Project

The brief for our Warrawee project was to redesign four bathrooms in this established family home on Sydney's Upper North Shore. The bathrooms were to be utterly luxurious but in an understated and subtle way. To achieve this we specified the very best materials and layered these textures, while keeping the lines very simple and clean. There is simplicity in the designs and therefore a sense of tranquility, even with the number of elements we have included.

Powder room
6 Saves | 0 Questions
As the powder room can be seen almost immediately upon entering the house, from the marble entry foyer, it was designed to be beautiful enough to always be on view and to set the tone for the overall understated luxury of the home. Our approach was to hide all functional aspects of the bathroom (shower, WC, linen press) so that the glamorous vanity became the focus. By rearrang...More

The brief for the main ensuite was to create the ambience of a New York luxury hotel - bold, generous and robust yet delicate - to suit the sensibilities of both clients. To achieve this we were meticulous in space planning, considering the proportions to create a generous vanity with a deep bench top in luxurious cloudy grey superwhite marble and glowing walnut drawers with p...More

Ensuite Shower

Elements of this luxurious and glamorous bathroom were connected through the placement and layering of materials and through the lines and shapes created. Running the superwhite marble plinth shelf of the shower through the glass screen made a subtle shower zone that was not demarcated or boxy, complementing the beautiful honed carrera marble fan mosaic wall tiles, and softenin...More

Ensuite Bath

The bath was placed in a corner under the windows to sit in dappled light filtered through the timber shutters - the effect is to feel both nestled and floating at the same time. Floor tiles are luxurious soap stone finished carrera tiles and wall tiles are tocca glass mosaics. Each material must show light and shade, be of best quality, with each element enhancing the others, ...More

The brief was to create a bathroom for two confident young men in their late teens, just finished high school and ready to take on the world! A very small space with limited scope for creative space planning, our goal was to go as bold as the brothers themselves. The brief was to shout a young men’s sanctuary – bold and playful, quirky yet completely practical, to suit the sen...More

Boys' Bathroom Vanity

Designing bespoke joinery for the vanity allowed plentiful storage, that was divided, enabling each boy to have their own personal drawer space. With use of dark elements in the joinery, such as the black terrazzo, black tapware and black Articolo wall light, a strength and masculinity is evident, yet the handmade elements and use of textured, raw materials lighten the overall ...More

Boys' Bathroom Shower

Running the marble penny round tiles throughout the shower created a separate zone from the rest of the bathroom. The existing ceiling line and careful placement of the sky light created unique forms throughout the space, which elevated the playfulness and joyous feeling we were to achieve within the design. Going with the fall of light in the space, directly into the shower cu...More

Girls' Bathroom

The brief was to create a peaceful, feminine ambience for a teen girl who shares the bathroom with guests on occasion. Given her age, her playful personality and our Studio’s propensity for doing things a little differently, our concept was to go for serenity with a splash of whimsy. The wet room zone was left to the creation of a wide open shower, without boundaries, defined o...More

Girls' Bath

Swathed in light, the bath was placed central to the wetroom to create focal point. Using a delicate palette we created a bathroom that emulated a sense of true beauty, comfort and luxury. Our goal was to play on texture and celebrate light, with colour play reduced to its most subtle, incorporating gentles hues of dove grey, blush and ivory.
