‘We create warm, family homes – homes that people want to live in,’ she explains.
Display homes are the company’s ‘passion projects’, presenting an opportunity to showcase innovative design and ideas, technical flair, and new products. They’re a chance to build without compromise – unfettered by clients’ requirements or budgets. Accordingly, every aspect of the Skypoint’s kitchen is finished to the highest possible specification, and the design was geared towards optimising both functionality and lifestyle.
To take advantage of the home’s riverside location in North Fremantle, the Riverstone design team employed a ‘reverse living’ strategy, whereby the secondary bedrooms are located on the ground level, with the kitchen, living space, and master suite elevated to the second floor. The open-plan kitchen is ideally positioned to capture the water views, and transitions seamlessly into the lounge, dining and alfresco entertaining areas.
The expertly planned zoning of the kitchen space has resulted in a room that’s the ultimate multi-tasker. The main section reads as a galley, with a large concrete-coloured island bridging the kitchen and dining spaces. On the kitchen side, it’s all business, with an undermount granite sink, integrated dishwasher and under-bench storage. The cooktop is on the opposite bench, completing the work triangle.
In contrast, the dining-room side of the island summons luxury and relaxation, with its built-in suede-upholstered bench seat and adjacent timber-topped breakfast bar.
