The relaxed, contemporary interior design was inspired by sophisticated yacht interiors and was tailored to make the best use of the abundance of natural light in the apartment. The ARRCC team of Michele Rhoda and Mark Rielly, assisted by Chad Brander, AnnaLisa Cunningham-Cooper and client representative Karen Stanek from Christian Nell Designs who was responsible for the interior decor, created elements that accentuate the triple volume and create a feeling of openness, not unlike the vast views over the bay.
From the entrance hall on the third level, the triple volume becomes visible through a glass bridge placed alongside the open brushed stainless steel and timber staircase that connects the two wings of the apartment. Above, a bespoke light fitting of aqua coloured glass panes that seem to float beneath the limed oak timber ceiling, mimic the rippling water surfaces of the bay. The curved wood panelling stretching across the rear face unifies the upper floor while concealing the guest bathroom and framing the wine cellar.
To the left, the spacious lounge leads to the study. The dining room and bar on the right open to a terrace on the sea side. The kitchen behind can be screened off by sliding, tinted, bronze framed panels. On the middle level, a gallery space off the stairwell links the two wings featuring the private lounge and master bedroom with an open bathroom suite.
With a family lounge, covered outside lounge area and dining area with a BBQ and pool bar by the infinity swimming pool, the ground floor accommodates the entertainment needs of the owner.
While the internal spaces are kept decidedly simple and elegant, materials and textures such as satin brass, limed oak, stainless steel, marble and mirror are sumptuously applied and bring sophistication and richness to the layered spaces. The bold textures and colours of fabrics used perfectly reference the owner’s curated collection of art.
