Vaucluse House I Interiors

The Mediterranean inspired interior design of this Vaucluse home seamlessly blends its interiors and exteriors with its unique selection of materials and forms.

Designed for a family of five, key to the house’s aesthetic is the layering of deep stone clad walls, columns and openings to the capture the light and views of the nearby harbour, while also giving the occupants privacy and a sense of real enclosure in this exposed location.

The sculptural use of stone and concrete dominate, and the masonry boundary wall and associated planting create a haven from the street. With its use of recycled timbers, careful metal detailing, polished concrete stairs and stone basalt, house has a sense of timelessness and permanent modernity, while satisfying the owners original intent for a Mediterranean style.

The lighting, furnishings, finishes and services were all carefully designed and chosen to reinforce and complement this raw and direct aesthetic. It has a wonderful sense of scale, light and acoustic quality that creates a unique atmosphere.

Reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s organic architecture that echoed natural forms and materials within the interiors of his projects, Mediterranean inspired interior design brings the natural world in through its thoughtful design and creates a harmony between people and nature.
