Photography by Prue Ruscoe In the eastern suburb of Sydney of Darlinghurst, YSG Studio projected a penthouse with a colourful furnishing selections and a Rushcutters Bay view.

The design team has decided to drop the ceiling to accommodate services in one corner of the rectangular living area, staining its timber surface black for cossetting appeal. Extending towards the lift lobby, a mechanical sliding main entrance connects the two zones, creating an intimate vestibule like lounge/library. Musk, lilac and plum are the trifecta hues within the open living area with citrus accents introduced via golden bands encircling the illuminated Murano glass totems and an amber porthole piercing the sliding entrance door.

he design team of YSG Studio has gutted the entire penthouse, from flooring to overhead lighting, transforming it into an immersiveT haven for the owners. Oversized soft landings, deep piled custom rugs and stone surfaces with planetary swirls levitate within. Counterbalancing the sobriety of the box-like architectural frame shrouded in glass, they demarcate zones within the expansive living area.

The overall scheme is literally conveyed like a colour wheel key to the home via the dining table co designed with Adam Goodrum. Its graphic wreath like exposed mortise detailing (which flows down the legs) depicts the dominant shades of the Ashome.consummate entertainers, the clients requested ”conversational custom pieces”. A ganache rich ‘wall’ of joinery forms the backdrop to the kitchen’s kinetic drama.

The watermarked taffeta-like veneer responds to the harbor's rippled surface, heightening the solid, swirling mass of the utilities bench before it. The designers clad it in mis matched oversized Lapis blue granite tiles (plus the surface of the quirky mobile drinks trolley with its integrated lamp). Cut from slabs to resolve lift height restrictions preventing the transport of solid pieces, they set the theme for graphic walls animated by glossy Moroccan tiles.

Initiating more storage was tricky with so many glass walls, so all the custom beds feature cavities beneath them to maintain the streamlined appeal of the walls.

Within the master bedroom, the upholstered bedhead with integrated side tables features stained zebra veneers crowned with Calacatta Viola marble. A solar system of blown glass lighting in berry shades orbits above. Always in the same tones, the bed lines together with the white cream rug complete the décor. This room has also been extended upon the balcony to accommodate a study nook and generous walk in wardrobe and created a verdant entertaining oasis outdoors that blocks prying eyes from neighbouring towers.

The penthouse’s material advantage comes via the use of luxe elements including marble. Applied in light, crisp layers within the bathrooms and powder room and atop coffee plus bedside tables, its gestural patterns impart a sense of playfulness. So streamlined is the vanity ledge in the master en suite with its integrated shallow sinks that its swirling veins grant the illusion of levitation. A splash back wraps around the shower recesses providing a practical ledge for accessories, ending mid gait to avoid enclosing the expansive nature of the white tiles.

For example, the sofa by Paolo Castelli with its soft curves and light shades together with the round carpet are evident in the whole design. As well as the small round steel table that matches the floor lamp with its curved leg, also in steel. Olga Fradkina's posters are featured here as well and are accompanied by bright accents on the walls. Another element to note is the fireplace of course. Although it is small, there is a gray colored frame that infuses it and makes it very captivating.

The living room leads to the study which includes a workplace and a recreation area.

The child's room has a two story solid wood structure that includes a sleeping place, a sofa and a recreation and play area on the second floor. Circles in the shape of Vibia handles, ceiling lights and appliques support the main figure of the project.

With a brick wood and the wood accent light with black metal colour palette and subtle transitional undertones, the entryway lends to the peaceful atmosphere of the house.

Entrance leads to the common areas with zones being demarcated through a subtle transition in materials or the use of anchoring elements that give each room a unique vibe.

In the dining space, a solid wood table alludes a connection with the outdoors. Beyond the dining there is an outdoor seating with a mandir in the backdrop, adding to the tranquility of the space. Connecting with the dining is the open plan kitchen with ivory cabinetry.

While the powder bathroom is an amalgamation of the transitional chic kitchen and the farmhouse/rustic dining room. The use of playful patterns lends to the feeling of wonder.

"Objects in the space appear to be simple overall but they include subtle details, such as textures, that balance simplicity with complexity and give a timeless quality to the space. This balance of simplicity and complexity ensures that one does not tire of the space but constantly finds new meanings and enriched beauty that causes its aesthetic value to grow and adapt with the family’s changing needs over the years.”

The staircase leads to the second floor that opens to the lounge area with a zen touch with minimal natural tones. This area forms the highlight: an open, unrestricted habitat in which the rooms dissolve easily into each other, doorways are designed as visual portals between common spaces and create a feeling of Hiwaga as one moves between spaces.

The second floor also includes the son’s bedroom. The designers opted for two types of walls: wallpaper with a checkered print on one side and the monotony of beige on the other. On the walls we also find white panels at the bottom thus creating a sense of depth. The furniture present is simple: white, with square shapes. Through the door, on which the wallpaper and panels have been applied to make it less appealing, you enter the walk in closet with a simple design. Next, there is also an attached bathroom with a terrazzo counter and natural brick tiles on the walls.

"Colour has been used to produce a sense of wonder while giving individuality to each room. Understated, not innocent. Subdued colours, overlaid with tones of grey and white to allow for a space that exudes tranquillity while inducing a sense of awe.”

“The owners are art lovers, and so a strategic corner in the lounge was dedicated to a red and white work of art created by the Israeli artist Orit Fuchs. The variety of other art pieces dotted around the house 'break' the clean white design and inject a fresh twist into the mix.”

A concealed family and TV room is located near the kitchen, also fitted with fishbone parquet. Unlike the rest of the property, this room was designed in darker tones with a luxurious leather couch, stools, and an advanced audio system. The lounge continues the kitchen’s clean design lines. A variety of harmonious seating spaces, in neutral shades, were placed in the lounge and include chaiselounges, stools and other inviting cozy areas for each and everyone of the family members. This space was designed purely for the purpose of entertaining and overlooks the garden through large windows that create a sense of space and seamless continuity between the indoors and the outdoors. A large area of the swimming pool, which isn't big and mostly used for entertaining, was dedicated to a splash pool with sunbeds. A lounging area and a dining area were designed on either side of the pool, each continuing their respective internal areas.

The entrance to the master bedroom is through a corridor of cupboards. Those, as well as the door to the en suite, are concealed by engraved carpentry. The same carpentry design was used for the bed headboard, which is combined with hanging reading lights, as well as the cupboard fitted across from the bed. This creates a harmonious look with ample storage space.

The design concept in the couple’s large en suite is different. The space is tiled with large, thin, dark gray tiles, and the space is fitted with a dominant freestanding bath, a large shower and a granite covered cupboard.

The stairs were covered in wood that matches the parquet and continues the design thread. A glass banister, supported by hidden attachments, emphasizes the “less is more” theme. A small bridge was designed on the top level, from which the ground level can be observed and serves as a partition between the children’s wing and the parents’ wing.

A large guest suite was designed in the basement with a cozy lounge and an exit to a courtyard, to be used by their three grown children when they come to visit. Here, the design theme of the property with parquet floors continues. There are also a seating area, a bed that overlooks a courtyard, a large TV and a pampering Thebathroom.basement includes also a kitchenette and a well equipped gym.

A garden) at the lower, original level. This causes a difference in height and light that poses design challenges and creative opportunities in equal measure especially in such a traditional house where a balance must be struck between respecting heritage and introducing modern touches.

To create an interior that fits the original architecture while freshening it up, the spatial qualities of each living area were assessed and the properties of height, light and each building structure and window shape were maximised. Fruits of this approach are perhaps most visible in the spacious kitchen and dining area at the back of the house. A low beam ceiling s you might have guessed, Dijkhuis are built next to a dyke. As building a dyke raises the ground level, it means that houses around it have a back area (and

In the kitchen itself a terrazzo kitchen top is matched with detailed wooden cabinets on a terracotta tiled wooden floor and a light custom porcelain cabinet made of glass, wooden profiles and white tiles.

Turning right, you enter the living room, the most lavish space in the house. Light streams in through tall arched windows that give the curved, high ceiling with art deco decorations a spacious and welcoming feel. Both the ceiling and the walls have been painted in three hues of white to enhance the room’s architectural elements. In a room with so much natural light, darker colours could be used to dramatic effect, such as on the dark herringbone floor. But all eyes will here be drawn to a monolithic walnut cabinet

Upstairs from the kitchen the entrance hallway is on the same level as the dyke. Across the hall is a toilet decorated with square off white tiles: glossy on the wall, matt tiles on the floor. Further furnishings include wooden painted plinths, purple marble and an oak wooden toilet cabinet with brass details.

whose shape mirrors the windows opposite it. A large green sofa and a built in cocktail bar with a terrazzo top make this a room where you can relax from dusk to dawn.

The first floor hosts four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate toilet. To create enough space for these living arrangements, two dormer windows were installed that run along two thirds of the length of the roof. In contrast to downstairs, the floors here are lighter, with brighter colours on the walls to create a serene atmosphere. On the bedroom ceilings you’ll find details of the original beamed roof. Both bathrooms have a travertine back splash and are tiled with upright rectangular glossy tiles on the walls, and matt tiles in a herringbone pattern on the floor. Herringbone returns in the double plank parquet in the bedrooms, but in the corridors, this changes into straight planking to give the vertical dimensions of the house more character. This symbolizes the way Studio Modijefsky has paid tribute to the building’s heritage while filling it with contemporary style.
