Celebrating colour and materiality, Boronia House is the contemporary reimagination of a pre-existing dwelling. Withinterior design by Esoteriko, the familyhome captures an uplifting and lively environment.
Located in the harbourside suburb of Bellevue Hill, Boronia House is surrounded by expansive properties interspersed by leafy sections of green. Mirroring the height of the neighbouring houses, the familyhome is comfortably settled within its immediate built context.
In the kitchen, walnut panelling clads the cabinetry, complementing the dark limestone flooring of the original dwelling. An impressive double-height void frames the kitchen island bench from above, presenting the piece as the dramatic focal point of the familyhome. Guiding residents up through the void is a set of floating concrete stairs.
Throughout Boronia House, Esoteriko forges a strong relationship between the home and the natural vistas beyond. On the ground floor, outdoor joinery bridges the conceptual gap between familyhome and garden. An external seating area increases engagement with the landscape, alongside a new staircase and elevated swimming pool.
Embracing a natural connection alongside colour, Esoteriko develops the liveability of a familyhome. Boronia House enhances everyday life, prompting residents to adopt a more relaxed and explorative means of occupying space.
