The design incorporated groups of pendant lights at different levels, LED recess strip lighting around the perimeter of the roof glazing and wall lights at first floor height along the walls. The lighting and colour contrasting critical surfaces created truly inclusive spaces which cater for the needs of residents and appeals to visitors. Bespoke furniture was manufactured, including large comfortable high-back circular seating and two unique coffee tables, designed to sit on top of round upholstered footstools. Clever use of this furniture and dividing features breaks up the large space and achieves the flexibility needed to host a variety of community events.
We continued the natural aesthetic throughout the entire design, encompassing everything from the fabric pattern choices to the wallpaper designs.
Boasting breathtakingly quaint views of the harbour, we wanted to ensure these views remained the focal point, so we selected a calm and neutral colour palette, to complement the views, without overpowering them. With the large spanning windows bringing in an abundance of light, we wanted even those who weren’t able to get outside, to still experience and enjoy it.
With each and every corridor and room boasting its own unique view, we designed each space around its viewpoint, so that it would not only act as a conversation starter, but would also aid residents with finding their way.
