Currawong House expresses the life and passion of Olive Cooke and Henry Tervenski. Designed with Davis Architects, Currawong House emerges as a warm and highly personal dreamhome. Specially selected stonework and tiling allows the residence to feel established and poised.
Constructed by Morada Build, the two-storey dreamhome sits proudly on an acre of land in Ewingsdale. Throughout the house, understated modernist architecture mingles with an eclectic interiority that is spearheaded by pieces of vintage furniture, discovered and beloved by the homeowners.
Stone and Japanese ceramic tiles from Artedomus fundamentally contributes to the interior design of the dreamhome, featured in multiple rooms: Sareva quartzite lies in material harmony with timber cabinetry in the kitchen: Zena, a light-toned travertine, stretches across the majority of the main bathroom: a selection of stones appear arranged in captivating Palladiana-style pattern throughout the master ensuite.
Throughout the dreamhome, the bathroom spaces are imbued with character-defining sophistication. Several walls are delicately detailed with ceramic tiles made in Japan, featuring a creamy finish while terracotta tiles from Italy feel robust underfoot. The textural and visually nuanced spaces express the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, which embraces the unique beauty of imperfection.
Reflecting the professional talents of Davis Architects and Morada Build, as well as the discerning eye of Olive Cooke, Currawong House stands as a dreamhome that clearly articulates the homeowners’ zest for life.
