Janine Allis’ Residence

The Allis Residence is intended to be an expression of those who dwell there. It’s layered, robust, minimalist, elegantly understated and subtly flows from one space to another, connecting the accumulated personality of the family yet remaining true to individuals. Photography by Damien Kook

A new build mansion with strong contemporary lines required decoration & design tactics that navigated the contradictions of hard and soft, serious and playful, monumental and domestic. The detailed approach to designing & decorating this home found the synergy between these elements to create a modern, striking yet comfortably beautiful home.

Through clever use of architectural forms and thoughtful material choices the home is filled with hard finishes which appear soft, fixed materials which appear to move and solid materials which appear to float. Throughout the house, aesthetic components harness the elements of nature and humanise the monumentality of the house.
