Wallis Design, ZD Construction and JPM Bathrooms
Hawthorn, VIC, Australia
The concept design takes inspiration from Japanese Aesthetics. Combining clean lines with natural raw materials, neutral tones and paired back detailing to create a sense of warmth within. We balanced the warmth of the exposed brickwork walls with pale timber and grey hues throughout the joinery and furniture. The open shelving allowed us to break up the space, while still allowing natural light to filter through and provided us a place to display project materials and the unique objects that had been sourced. By introducing layers into the space through the use of screening, open shelving and custom joinery, we were able to achieve the balance of semi-private and shared spaces throughout. We were inspired by Japanese design principles of practice and craftmanship. We focused on locally sourced materials, handcrafted joinery pieces and refined detailing.
