House Tour - A Ron Sang delight

Occasionally a property comes my way that looks as great naked as it does dressed - this 70’s baby is one of those. ‘Miss Kohi Road’ was designed by reknowned architect, Ron Sang. She has two sisters (170 b & c), but apart from that, is completely unique. A rare and beautiful gem.

'Miss Kohi Road' is ‘a study of shapes’ - squares, rounds, triangles, rectangles - they’re all present here. Cleverly proportioned and balanced. Colour defines the edges, contrasting cladding defines the levels. She is playful and so much more interesting than most of what is built today.

What’s most clever about the outside of this house is the use of reflective glass. It stops our eye being distracted by what’s inside, enabling us to focus on the shapes and details of her exterior.

Squares love rounds. It's often the first thing I add, a round mirror, rug or cushion. But in this home, the rounds are built-in, by way of three giant round windows whose windowsills are thicker than the walls of the house...

Bold architecture deserves bold colour. I had great fun choosing the styling palette to compliment this feature wall : )

Glass doors work their magic to extend the end of this room, and full-height doors take the ceilings highger.

Reflective glass ensures the bathroom is a haven of privacy.

Curves to echo curves, greenery to echo greenery...

Upstairs it's the racked peak ceiling that works it's creative magic on you. Furniture, designed in the same era as the house, feels right at home – low-slung and un-obtrusive.

A floor-to-ceiling window brings the outside right on in.
