Private Residence, Herne Bay

Auckland, New Zealand

An existing 90s home extensively renovated for a discerning client.


The brief was succinct: dark oak, brass and marble in an entertainer’s family home with the feel of a five-star hotel.  The requested opulence was balanced with low sheen natural materials and a restrained palette to keep the spaces feeling relaxed.


The overall effect is a cohesive sequence of bright spaces, dotted with bold statements throughout.
