Eschewing the typically rough-hewn or sea-faring styles adopted for many coastal/country homes, Studio Griffiths took a refined and elegant approach when designing Main Ridge 2, located in the inland rolling hills of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
Despite its nod to barn-style architecture, the striking deep grey weatherboard and colourbond structure sits smartly within its manicured landscape, with opposing central doors and windows creating a clear link between the interior and its lush surrounds.
The hallmarks of Studio Griffiths’ projects are attention to detail and a clever mix of materials, often used in unexpected combinations, or with a new spin on their application.
With an overall colour palette of black, blanched oak and white, with just a hint of colour (from only the murky end of the spectrum) the selection of Fibonacci Steel for the bathroom and laundry lent another level of urbane sophistication to the wet areas.
However, it’s the design of a feature wall of custom cut terrazzo stone, laid in a striking diamond pattern, that sets this room apart. Fibonacci Stone worked closely with Studio Griffiths in the custom cutting of the stone (with the help of our partner AMS Surfaces), to create what we think is another brilliant take on mixing tradition with modernity.
It’s what we love best here at Fibonacci Stone – working with clever designers to create new ways of using this product with such a rich history. Congratulations to Studio Griffiths on another wonderful project.
