Bayview House by Ioanna Lennox

Ioanna Lennox have been shortlisted for Bathroom Award in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2020. 

A contemporary and sophisticated luxury master suite and Bathroom renovation in the stunning seaside location of Bayview on Sydney’s Pittwater.

A sense of space was a quintessential aspect of the design as this would evoke the feeling of luxury. There is an abundance of light and space in the finished project with each fixture thoughtfully placed and considered. The size and location of the ensuite allowed for the opportunity to include two entry points into the new bathroom: one as a walk-through from the bedroom and one from the opposite side directly linking to the walk-in robe. The envelope of the ensuite with its 3-metre high porcelain marble panels and herringbone tiled floor set the stage for the bespoke fixtures and tapware and are the unsung heroes of the bathroom.

In the bedroom, a favourite aspect is the way colour has been used tonally and layered with textures and warmth in everything from the automated drapes and sheers to the bedlinen and silk wallpaper to the artwork on the floor, the rug.

The inspired master suite has a cohesive narrative and flow. These have been achieved by the considered space planning and functionality which were essential for the success of the design, adding to the exceptional result. All of the design elements have combined to create harmony and a sense of well-being. The masculine palette is balanced by the curves and sumptuous textures of the soft furnishings, resulting in an overall refined contemporary aesthetic.

A water-front property in a seaside location called for a luxurious remodelling. Ioanna steered away from traditional beach style or a Hamptons-inspired renovation and instead took cues from 6-star hotels of the world. Ioanna remained cognisant that the final result had to fit in the relaxed Australian lifestyle but provide a sophisticated landing pad for our well-travelled client, who appreciates luxury and life’s finer things.
