Arch & Scallop House - by Rebecca Jansma

The Arch & Scallop house sits near the surfing mecca of Bell’s Beach. The brief was simple, “design something we haven’t seen before”. With no fear of colour or pattern, this family home bears little resemblance to most coastal abodes; it is utilitarian, hard wearing and strikingly beautiful.

Arches were included throughout the house as a nod to a classical motif and to soften the largely rectilinear spaces, in turn they inspired the reverse concept and use of the scallop shape in the kitchen island bench top.

Finer Details

The minimalist aesthetic of Bankston cabinetware pieces lent themselves perfectly to this project. The sleek lines and simple design language of the Cali pull and Bronte knob balance the vibrancy and eclecticism of the homes unique spaces.

The contrasting forms of the linear Cali pull and circular Bronte knob create further visual interest, a testament to the detailed approach to design.

With functionality as critical as individuality within this project, the solid forged brass cabinetware is reassuring and hard-wearing; serving form and function.

The distinct Bronzed Brass finish further complements the timber elements and deep tonal palette, offering moments of subtlety and refinement.
