The Forster home sits circumspectly surrounded by water and lush gardens. All interior elements, finishes and details of this residence, may it be fitted or loose have been finely crafted and placed to work seamlessly with the enchanting surroundings and captivating exterior architecture by Robin Payne Building designs.
The client gave the designer a free hand, apart from the instructions to create a resort ambience with tropical elegant living. The openness of the residence allows for the daily breeze to cool the vast spaces, whilst the flowing waters of the surrounding ponds act as a cooling agent. Sophisticated ceiling shapes create intriguing shadow lines during the day and stimulating layers of concealed LED illumination in the evening. The use of this layered lighting and the juxtaposition of forms, luring materials and sizeable spaces throughout the home help create a truly tranquil living experience.
