See the best of achromatic design at The Kaimana, a showcase of black and white so perfect it could have inspired the yin and yang.
Built by TERRACE Homes, this display in Treeby is a minimalist and almost colourless take on luxury, largely designed to let the architecture do the talking.
Visitors first see the impact of dark and light from the kerbside, with the daring scheme boosting a stunning sharp-edged facade.
Essentially an assembly of blocks, the clean lines and soft industrial elements meld beautifully with the monochromatic palette to create an undeniably inventive and modern elevation.
Through the front door, guests are welcomed by a paper white entrance hall and immediately see the king-sized master bedroom with an accompanying dresser and ensuite.
It’s considerately positioned by the entrance, so owners weary from work can kick off their shoes and flop right onto the mattress or zip through the ginormous walk-in robe to reach the earthy bathroom.
Pale pebble-coloured floor-to-ceiling tiles give the room the tranquil feel of a countryside riverbed, while a dash of luxury is achieved through the sculptural freestanding bath and skylight.
A dark floating vanity, square vessel sink and charcoal faucet complete the ensuite’s fresh and sophisticated look, along with the large frosted window and hanging pot plant.
Eskay Design Interior Designer Sarah Knox said these design elements were central to the unassuming elegance of the display home.
“The Kaimana’s achromatic colour scheme is luxurious and simple. By not using too many colours we’ve really let the structure and design detail of the home tell the story,” she said.
“Oak timber floors throughout bring some warmth to the space and create a neutral base for the house, allowing owners to add their own touches to the home.
“The generous kitchen and scullery features timeless European stainless steel appliances, so the heart of the home will stand the test of time.”
Visitors pass by a powder room, a storage space and step into a voluminous open-plan living area before reaching the kitchen – a chef’s delight and crown jewel of The Kaimana.
Again, the front elevation is reflected in the kitchen’s dark and light aesthetic complemented by a loose nod to industrial flair through the feature bar lights.
The separated white-topped breakfast bar will have visitors daydreaming of serving up bacon and pancakes and seeing the children push their finished plates straight into the integrated sink, while guests can imagine the main kitchen bench and cupboard space facilitating a breezy cooking experience.
Just as a restaurant will have a behind-the-scenes prep room, The Kaimana comes with a generously sized scullery and open-faced walk-in pantry with a dishwasher, additional sink and more cupboards.
TERRACE Homes Acting Brand Manager Renee Morrell-Brown said the ground-floor kitchen, dining and lounge space was cleverly connected to the alfresco and perfect for feeding the family and entertaining guests.
She said family function was at the core of this masterfully designed home, which managed to feel large, breathable and jam-packed all at the same time.
“We purposely designed The Kaimana on a 328sqm lot, which is just under the average Perth block size,” Ms Morrell-Brown said.
“It demonstrates that families do not have to compromise on luxury, even if their lot size is small.
“By creating shared and zoned spaces, including ample built-in storage and blending indoor and outdoor living, we have designed a spacious family home on a compact land parcel.
“The flexibility of spaces means this is a design which will cater for a growing family.”
Ms Morrell-Brown said she couldn’t pinpoint a singular favourite part of The Kaimana, but rattled off double-height volumes, high and large glazing panels and plenty of sky outlooks as memorable elements of the display.
She said these features emphasised the abode’s sense of openness and outside connectivity, which incidentally inspired the display home’s creation.
“The inspiration for The Kaimana came from the history of the display home location in Treeby,” Ms Morrell-Brown said.
“The Kaimana offers a subtle nod to the history of its surrounding area.
“Using modern linear pieces and subtle curved walls, the design reflects a sense of flight and movement.”
The Kaimana is open for viewing on Wednesdays from 2-5pm and Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 12-5pm.
