For a unique space like this, it should come as no surprise that many of the furnishings are bespoke. The design team of Mark Rielly and Tavia Pharaoh, out of Antonia Associates, used a starkly minimalist style. Many of the pieces are sparse, which serves to emphasize the stunning architectural spaces. Materials such as off-shutter concrete, Rheinzink roofing, timber cladding, and stone were specifically chosen for the way in which they will be able to age gracefully and fade into the landscape as the house stands for many years. 10 |

The interior design, of course, is understated but should not be overlooked.
