Interior

R e s i d e n t i a l

Arrival and internal circulation are modified to refocus the interiors on the landscape while removing wasted areas and dramatically expanding the entertainment and bedroom facilities. This process highlighted the need to Darkhorse to always consider carefully the design of development villas, to really focus on the functionality and effective use of spaces as if you can imagine the needs of an unknow family.

Strange spaces, unnecessary double height spaces and correct family zoning were the issues that the client needed addressing to meet the needs of a growing family whilst still providing a level of luxury and refinement that most families aspire to in this high-end villa market.

A dramatic interior mood and palette is balanced by the dominate view and extensive daylight levels that transforms at night into a warm, almost club like hospitality experience. The house can easily be a place of serenity, entertainment, and relaxed family living – all possible but just getting the planning correct.
