Greg Natale

Kyle Bay House, Australia

A striking modernist design, this three-storey, five-bedroom house on the Georges River features mid-century touches and bold color choices. Inspired by the Brazilian brutalist style of modernist architect Paulo Mendes Da Rocha, Greg Natale Design has crafted a house strong in materiality, where concrete plays a decorative as well as structural role.

Off-form concrete slabs present an attractive grid at the entrance, their tie holes filled with brass. Formed beams create a woven look on the ceilings of the stairwell and a long bridge connecting rooms, while in a sunken living room they make a crisscross pattern on the ceiling, echoed in the rug below to dramatic effect. Rosewood brings balance and warmth to ceilings and furniture, such as the Cubist-style kitchen cabinets and the hand-cut panels on the island, arrayed in a mid-century-inspired starburst pattern that complements the furniture. Clashes of color occur throughout, as blush plays with dark green, burgundy, teal and citrus tones. Patterned tiles, floor-to-ceiling windows and open-plan levels ensure that interior and exterior spaces interact in this robust layering of material and form.
