Residence R sees Nina Maya Interiors expertly reimagine the interior of a waterfront home. Featuring custom furniture and a restrained material palette, Residence R emerges as a minimalistdreamhome.
Located in one of Sydney’s most desirable neighbourhoods, Northbridge, Residence R sits as a minimalistdreamhome with access to stunning views of the bay. Formerly the house of Bob Hawke, the original exterior of the Residence is retained out of respect for its heritage.
As a minimalistdreamhome, Residence R features a curated and high-quality material palette. Charred and European oak sit harmoniously in a legible scheme that includes furnished brass and Italian marble. A specially selected slab of Patagonia quartzite is the jewel of the kitchen décor.
Within the minimalistdreamhome, lighting is chosen with care. In place of oppressive overhead task lighting, ambient lighting is emitted from multiple sources, integrated into the architecture of the home in a well-layered scheme. Some light sources take on a sculptural aspect whilst others lie flush and discreet against the walls.
Embracing its idyllic setting, Residence R stands as both a luxurious and minimalistdreamhome. Nina Maya Interiors’ adroit treatment of the coastal dwelling leaves residents firmly connected to its location.
