Set on 10 acres of rolling hills in Kangaroo Valley, NSW, this breathtaking property is one of the most beautiful and challenging projects Northern Beaches Painting are proud to have been involved in.
The building was designed by Sydney architect Duncan Sanby and featured in Grand Design magazine June 2016. Duncan Sanby took the design inspiration from agricultural structures.
“The building was designed to be subservient to the landscape and semi-industrial in appearance,” Duncan Sanby
We painted both interior and exterior but the main project was interior. Spanning three spacious wings including four bedrooms, huge living kitchen dining area, TV room and study, it was no mean feat to paint.
The colour palette is classic contemporary. We painted all ceilings, doors and walls in Dulux vivid white to complement the simple industrial style blended with Scandinavian influence, and to reflect the abundance of light bouncing off the concrete floor and huge windows.
The preparation was a job in itself, requiring the meticulous cutting in of white paint to black window frames and steelwork, which reached up to the apex of soaring 4.5 metre-high ceilings.
The effect is one of simple elegance, presenting a perfect canvas to feature the expansive views. Surrounded by forests, the only neighbours we met whilst working on this secluded retreat were the resident kangaroos and wombats, and the only sounds we heard were the songs of native birds.
