Sisalla Interior Design has recently completed a new project in Toorak, Melbourne. The interiors were designed to balance a contemporary minimal house with a welcoming ambience. The public spaces have a quiet luxury with a focus on contrasting texture whilst the private realm has softer materials to create warmth and relaxation. Photography by Tess Kelly
JUMA architects transformed a typical 1976 bungalow into a contemporary villa with a pleasant holiday feeling.
Nothing remains of the original layout. The changes start with the entrance door, which has been moved to a different location. The stairs to the basement and the attic were removed and replaced by two stair hatches, freeing up a considerable floor area that previously only served as circulation space. The garage was sacrificed as well. Not only because of the space it occupied, but mainly because it completely blocked the view on the most beautiful part of the garden. The unused attic space above the garage was opened up to the roof; in this way, JUMA created the perfect place to house the kitchen. The massive Vertigo lamp was hung above the central kitchen island, where it comes fully into its own.
This rental property is luxurious 5* penthouse with beautiful seaside views from all rooms designed in 2017. Larimar Penthouse covers an area of 120sqm and is large enough for comfortable stay of family of 4.
This commission involved the renovation and conversion of two duplex apartments into one single residence/retreat. The two existing external stairs were removed and replaced by a single internal staircase. This intervention made it possible to create one large outdoor area and maximise the existing view. The steel canopies and wooden sun terraces act as visual links between the two original living units. Dupli Dos is a project designed by JUMA architects in collaboration with Minimum Arquitectura.
The new “Authentic Interior” design studio designer’s owner Aida Šniraitė creation – monochromatic 50m2 apartment in an emerging neighbourhood in Vilnius, Lithuania is created for a single woman with strong tastes for industrial and urban US design, but with a quite limited budget. Very unusual colour combinations for conservative Lithuanians, as black doors and plinths, original concrete ceilings or black furniture. Inspired by industrial and urban US living, concrete, bricks, metal have been used without moderation. Apartment is divided into a living area of 30m2, a big shower zone of 6m2, a bedroom of 14m2. Proposed mood boards have been accepted and did not change throughout the design process.
