Unlike other 'showroom homes', Tyrone House feels like a house you want to live in. Luckily for the client, they wanted a home created to live in during their retirement with minimal maintenance, comfort and a strong affinity with its costal location. These interiors answer this brief.

Just like the winner, this home has a penetrating sense of warmth and liveability. Regardless of the contrast of finish throughout, the Castlemaine Slate, architectural veneers and rammed earth walls sit comfortably together.

Consideration has been given to the proportion of finish and tone in the kitchen. The mid-toned polished concrete kitchen floor holds the dark island bench in contrast to the wall of light storage opposite. All of these components are framed by the rammed earth walls of a muted honey tones.

Overall the lightness of the base building allows the strong interior elements to ground the furniture and views through the house and beyond.
