A simple beach home was transformed into a breathtaking Balinese resort-style residence, thanks to innovative use of materials
The brief to designer Mark Gacesa of was to create a home that made the client feel like they are on a permanent vacation.
The marriage between beauty, flexibility and strength made DuPont™ Corian® the compelling choice for surfaces throughout the project. Corian® Lava Rock was chosen in the master bathroom to create seamless harmony with the charcoal stone flooring and Lava Rock woven wall panelling. Its lightweight properties were ideal for essential practical details, such as concealing the laundry chute flap.
–“As an entertainer’s paradise, the design needed to combine showstopper looks with highly robust qualities.”
In the office, the curved desk inlays in Corian® Rice Paper accentuate the beautiful organic lines of the rosewood desktop and flow harmoniously into the lower floor joinery, visually connecting the desk to the travertine marble floor.
And when day turns to night, the home is transformed into a real showstopper. The magnificent backlighting of Corian® Witch Hazel creates a striking illusion of onyx marble, while perfectly complementing the contemporary elements during the day.
The result is a sleek and sexy residence that has won multiple awards, including the Queensland Interior Design Award and the 2013 Corian® Design Awards. But most importantly, it is a home the owners say no holiday destination can match.
