Gunnamatta House is a minimal residence located in Sydney, Australia, designed by Akin Atelier. The relaxed Australian way of life is layered with a rich European tone to influence the interior design direction. The geometry, materials, and finishes of the interiors are intended to complement the architecture. In order to create a sense of subtle separation among open plan areas, the journey of the home is a series of shifting palettes that transition across spaces. The interior foundation palette is tonally consistent and is made up of polished concrete, walnut wood, rattan, and bronze. Marble and sandstone are then used to add differences in color and texture. The color scheme changes to both go along with the family’s everyday routines and their ties to the surrounding area and bay.
