Kew House 3 by Vibe Design Group

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

When Vibe's team sought to create an open, more interactive street presence for the Kew House 3 project, they looked to 60s and early 70s era stereo cabinets for inspiration.

From these humble origins, Vibe Design Group has crafted a home that is simply awe inspiring. The slatted timber entryway reflects the slotted speaker elements whilst the angled steel posts that support the structure are reminiscent of stereo cabinet legs. These allow the house to appear floating above the inclined landscape.

Visitors to the home are first greeted by a wall of veneer panels that create the illusion of being at the base of a huge tree. Hidden within this wall are the entries to the cloak, powder room and cellar.

The Caesarstone® kitchen is finished in Organic White from the Classico collection, including a ‘preparation cube’ on the island bench that returns to the timber floor.

"We believe the subtle pattern on the organic white gives it a timeless quality." said Vibe Design Group.

Caesarstone® Brown Pebble was also chosen for the cellar whilst Caesarstone® Pure White was used in the gym and guest area.
