The Waipa project by Matt South and Noel Jessop Architecture emerged as a response to a young family’s desire for a home which harmonised with both their dynamic rural surroundings and their busy lives. The result is a breathtaking oasis of country living which provides seclusion, tranquillity and – naturally – the most luxurious comforts of contemporary living.
Matt South decided to draw from the hues and textures seen in the local vernacular, inspired by the client’s love of camping and bushwalking, to create a limited palette of finishes which were applied with sleek, contemporary precision. Among these, Neolith’s 12mm Mont Blanc adds an unexpected silken textural dimension to the kitchen bench and splashback – striking an artful balance between chic design and the natural landscape.
Product-led and editorially curated, The Habitus Edit offers a unique perspective on the exceptional designers and brands across the Indo-Pacific region and beyond. Learn more about this extraordinary project by Matt South and Neolith’s elegant contributions in the latest edition of The Edit.
