With such a formal architectural expression, Mim Design wanted the interiors of Horizon Flinders to emerge as a ‘standstill’ of sorts; a calm counterpart to the large, sculptural gestures that one sees when they first arrive. “Given the generous scale of the home, we were determined to make the spaces feel comfortable and practical,” director Mim Fanning says. As a result, the spaces have a distinct boldness and solidity, yet a sense of softness and restraint similar to the exterior.
Parallels between the interiors and the landscape are everywhere. The white stone used in the kitchen resembles foam washing up against the shore – the curve of the island bench mimicking a gentle wave form – while the bar and cellar resemble the water, calling on sumptuous hues of green stone. This pairing of white and green stone is a running theme, as is the use of curves, bringing the ocean with you wherever you go.
