The details are not the details, they are the design.

Alamer, ‘House by the Sea’ is a landmark boutique apartment residence by Lowe. Conceived by a stellar design team, Fiona Lynch and Wolveridge Architects, the architecture and interiors are meticulously considered and respond seamlessly to their locale and context in Brighton, Melbourne. Known for her expertise in ‘harnessing the quiet brilliance of minimalism and materiality’ Lynch’s use of timber veneer, warm colours and inherent texture are the basis of the sophisticated and bespoke design.
From the street, robust and established flora set the tone for the palette, strong yet earthy, informing the approach to materiality. With a focus on scale and proportion, the spaces playfully and bravely combine materials and details providing an aesthetic which is minimalist and luxury, refined and understated.
“A classic layering of natural textures blends with warm appointments to create a relaxed sense of elegance, whilst inviting personalisation into living spaces,” explains Fiona Lynch. The resulting living spaces are generous in aspect, proportion and materiality, the custom joinery throughout meticulously detailed and crafted, timeless and unique.

Elton Group’s ALPI Xilo Planked White, part of the Alpi Designer Collection, is the perfect complement to travertine, polished plaster, and fluted glass. The detailing also celebrates the unique beauty of the timber veneer in an experienced yet experimental way. Timber grains run horizontally across the joinery, with the return of the travertine benchtop wrapping into the detail of the drawer, unique and elegant. In other areas, full height doors and a credenza unit, also in ALPI Xilo Planked White, create a soft warm ambience throughout. Unexpected details such as the skirting, bench legs and bull-nosed shelving work together to create a sense of light and weightlessness. The textures speak for themselves and require minimal decoration.
