“Our clients wanted a home that felt like a boutique hotel with a lavish yet tranquil tonal and textural intensity that was rich in substance, not excess trimmings.”

Moody, earthy and sensuous this Sydney waterfront home by YSG features a lush material palette of glass bricks, stone, zellige tiles, tadelakt and woven raffia. Central to it all is the monolithic stone and mosaic tile kitchen island, the black diamond of the design.
