This minimalist, contemporary house is an entertainer’s dream. Home to a family
who regularly host large numbers of guests, it has Dekton® surfaces for durability, low maintenance, strength and a natural colour scheme.
The clients — a family of four with two teenage children — wanted a clutter-free, low-maintenance interior with minimalist, natural-coloured materials and colour scheme. Designed by Alec Pappas Architects, this new house located in Kyle Bay, south of Sydney, is designed to take in water views. The clients wanted a minimalist, contemporary home that wouldn’t date and that would complement the streetscape with other modern homes nearby.
The client has a close working relationship with FORM-RITE Co, which suggested the use of Dekton®.
The kitchen is used by the family during the week and for entertaining on the weekends (including 60 people for Christmas). The 3-metre-long island, clad in Dekton® Aura15, is the showpiece of the kitchen and a place for family and friends to comfortably congregate around.
Inspired by Calacatta and Carrara marble, Dekton® Aura15 provides timeless colour and style, with soft winding veining to complement the concrete-slab floor and timber-veneer joinery. Even with so many people using the benchtop, the surface is very easy to clean with liquids simply wiping away with no fear of stains.
Formal Dining Table
The clients wanted a dining table that has a glass aesthetic but with the durability of Dekton®. They selected Dekton® Spectra, which is so black it looks like glass and reflects the sparkling objects on it.
Large-format slabs on the walls and floors of the bathroom create the streamlined, minimalist look the clients desired. The bathrooms have a natural colour scheme to create soft, sanctuary-like spaces, with Dekton® Blanc Concrete and Dekton® Keon providing neutral tones to complement the European oak joinery. Basins in Dekton® Halo offer a crisp, glossy surface on top of the timber vanities.
