I had the pleasure of photographing this Japanese inspired house for Haysom Ward Miller. The story behind it is a fascinating one, one which challenges our tendency to accept design. Instead of overseeing a proposed structure (the plot they bought came with planning permission), the owners here used their cultural influences and design ideas to set about making this home beautiful through its subtlety, which worked hard to suit their modern needs as well as bringing something unique to the area which isn't overstated in size, shape or form.
The result is a series of clean, light spaces which seem to flow into one another. The materials - clean, natural and neural - are consistent throughout the home, from the wooden beamed, high ceiling height to the custom made ply fronts between the kitchen and bedroom. This palette helps nature set the scene, painting vibrant colours throughout with the indoor plants in full bloom. It's a breathtakingly tranquil place to spend time and I'm sure has become a wonderful home.
