Caesarstone benchtops were incorporated in the kitchen and bathrooms of a custom pre-fabricated home, designed and built through an extensive collaborative process.

The Rose Bay house was architecturally designed by Pleysier Perkins and constructed by PreBuilt in their Melbourne factory before being transported by truck to its address in the leafy Eastern beachside suburbs of Sydney.

The Designory team led by Larissa Raywood worked closely with the clients to refine the specifications for all of the finishes and interiors throughout the expansive new home. To meet the brief for a ‘luxe coastal meets city’ aesthetic, dark timber stains were mixed with whitewashed timbers, sandy natural stones and layers of tonal colour. Pendant and wall lighting was used to create areas of drama within the home, while there was considerable focus on beautiful handle detail, wallpaper selections and the sheer, textural window treatments.

Function was an important requirement for all the materials selected for the home interiors, ranging from hardwearing joinery finishes and tactile porcelain tiles through to comfortable seating choices.

Caesarstone’s quartz surfaces used in the Rose Bay home included London Grey 5000, which was selected for the kitchen benchtop, and Pure White 1141, specified for the bathroom vanity benchtops.
