The ground floor comprises an entrance hall that leads to a predominantly green open-plan kitchen and dining area. It features floor-to-ceiling storage, a feature that recurs throughout the entire house in various colours.
"The green makes reference to the garden and is otherwise a calm colour that is not overbearing in the large space," said R2 Studio. "The panelled wall picks up the colour as a chromatic variance."
Concrete countertops and splashbacks rest on top of birchwood cupboards with navy accents to contrast with the yellow kitchen wall units.
"The overall aim was to create a kitchen that doesn't scream 'kitchen', avoiding cold/shiny surfaces and making it into a comfortable space that the family spends most of their time in," said the architects.
Three bedrooms and a bathroom occupy the first floor, which can be accessed via one of two feature staircases, colour-matched with the walls.
"The colour on the walls matches the floor, creating a space that is somewhat more abstract than a traditional staircase with its runners and balustrades," said the architects.
Original features such as decorative plasterwork copings were removed during previous renovations and replaced with flush walls that meet a seamless rubber floor. The same flooring is used in all rooms of the house, excluding bathrooms.
