The development beautifully showcases basins from Schiavello bathroom subsidiary, Omvivo.
The three bedrooms home takes inspiration from Richard Neutra’s infamous Kaufmann House, combining mid-century with contemporary aesthetics. A pin wheel shaped floor plan with entry via a focal point courtyard at the rear; art gallery style corridors and natural light enhance the minimalist open space.
Build by Gibraltar Construction and designed by Anna Sulsters, the property makes use of recycled hardwoods, exposed brickwork, and concept design finishes and fittings. “The clients were actually my parents, so I knew their style and essentially what the brief was. I knew where I could and couldn’t push the boundaries”, says Ms Sulsters.
The property consists of two bathrooms and a powder room, which are pared back in design and restrained in pallet. Each features the solid surface Omvivo Lilli basin. The guest bathroom is an inspired wet room made of Calacatta marble hexagonal wall and floor tiles, and engineered timber oak wall panels. Two elegant, Lilli 550 basins in Charcoal Soft Skin enhance the washing experience with their stunning design and unique luxury finish.
“The basins had to compliment the tap ware, be easy to maintain and still look good in 30 or 40 years times. They couldn’t be masculine or sharp. The Lilli basin was an easy choice for its classic softness”, says Ms Sulsters. The master bathroom reverses the pallet with concrete looking floor tiles, almost-black oak wall panels and features the Lilli basin in white.
Originally designed for Ellenberg Fraser and Hecker Gutherie’s 2009 Lilli Apartments in Melbourne, the Lilli Basin was developed and added to the Omvivo Signature Collection for its simplistic form and beauty.
‘The collaboration between Gibraltar Construction and Anna Sulsters has produced a contemporary environment with inviting spaces and interesting architectural elements. The unique combination of textures and finishes enhances the Omvivo products beautifully and enhances the natural aspects. It is exciting to see a unique residential project of this calibre.’
