Simplistic Residence is a warm and inviting urban residential interior design haven. This multi-level duplex, spanning three floors, unveils spaces where simplicity effortlessly intertwines with modern living, offering an experience that captures the essence of contemporary city life with a touch of refined sophistication. Its inviting exterior and thoughtfully designed interior make Simplistic Residence a harmonious blend of strong elegance and minimalistic urban living. Our talented Stylesmiths designer drew inspiration from the client’s love for a dark and contrasting colour palette, with the aim of infusing this aesthetic into every facet of the project.
What sets this project apart is its remarkable fusion of minimalist architectural design and inviting residential interiors designed for a small family. Balancing the bold and resilient exterior architecture with warm and welcoming interior spaces was a unique challenge. We carefully navigated the interplay between the strong exterior elements and the universally appealing interior, paying meticulous attention to materials, colours, and lighting. Drawing inspiration from the minimalist facade, we introduced custom joinery throughout the entire home, seamlessly bridging the gap between bold design and comfortable living. This unbroken continuity from the facade to the joinery truly distinguishes this project and resonates with the vibrant spirit of minimalistic living.
Every detail of this residence’s interior design was meticulously crafted to ensure both functionality and aesthetics. This comprehensive approach covered three bedrooms, including a master suite with an ensuite, additional bathroom designs, separate study areas, a fully-equipped kitchen design, an entertainment room, and a spacious living area.
Upon entering the residence, a welcoming entry hall greets you, featuring alcove seating softly illuminated by integrated lights. This area seamlessly transitions into a study nook, seamlessly connected by floor-to-ceiling joinery. This design not only enhances storage and functionality but also provides an enticing glimpse of what lies beyond.
Rich, dark walnut joinery guides you into the expansive open-plan living area, where high ceilings invite the gentle flow of natural light. The kitchen design seamlessly merges Japanese simplicity with bold, masculine elements, highlighted by a striking dark grey natural stone island that commands attention both as a centrepiece and a splashback. This is elegantly complemented by a linear panelled timber extractor. Completing the ensemble, Krystila BCN bar stools beckon guests to gather in this inviting space. The dining area effortlessly extends the cohesive design language from the kitchen, featuring a European minimalist concept. A prominent dark timber dining table takes centre stage, paired with round-back Muuto Cover Armchairs that showcase clean and understated leg details.
As you move through the wide, finely cut oak floorboards, you enter the open-plan living area and the living room, where a floor-to-ceiling custom joinery TV unit warmly welcomes you. This unit is tastefully adorned with a natural stone trim and features built-in alcove seating, skillfully enhancing the room’s spaciousness and providing extra seating for social gatherings. A low-profile B&B Italia sofa adds a touch of both playful and refined seating, its graceful curves resting atop a Minotti rug. Two Classicon Bell Coffee Tables, each of distinct heights and hand-blown from glass, invite relaxation, while an overhead lamp sets the mood with its perfect evening lighting. The living room boasts magnificent floor-to-ceiling windows and patio doors, adorned with linen curtains that infuse a sense of softness and ethereal ambiance. These elements seamlessly connect the space to an alfresco dining area, which gracefully extends into the lush lawn beyond.
The bedroom offers a tranquil retreat, radiating a softer ambiance compared to the rest of the house. It features built-in wardrobes and a sturdy bedside table with a substantial top, beautifully complemented by the exquisite Jardan Nelly table light. This design’s material theme continues seamlessly into the bathroom’s interior design. Walnut floating cabinetry is gracefully paired with natural stone countertops, while the ensuite boasts a striking wall adorned with matte-finish Japanese Kitkat tiles, accompanied by opal glass wall lights. Porcelain slab tiles grace the surrounding walls and floors, creating a serene and contemplative sanctuary.
