Richmond Hill House

Photographer: Kevin Smith


Overlooking Christchurch’s Sumner beach, this Architecturally designed home marries modern, classic design with luxury and comfort.

The architectural features and sophisticated interior palette blend seamlessly creating a rich, luxurious and timeless design. Stone, timber and mild steel are some of the materials used in this project, complimented by a subtle palette of oyster whites, black stained oak cabinetry and Italian mosaic tiles. We were careful in the selection of finishes, fixtures and materials to maintain a consistency between the exterior and interior. We repeated these exclusive finishes throughout, keeping the palette minimal and raw. A well thought out selection of furniture, lighting and art was an important factor in complimenting the hard fit out finishes and fixtures. A combination of Italian signature pieces and custom designed, New Zealand made sofas, tables and accessories, created well composed, elegant living spaces.
