An alteration to an existing warehouse conversion on Gadigal country, Rosso Verde is quality over quantity personified. This project rejects the prevailing notion that bigger is always better, instead preferring a large green garden over undefined space of the old warehouse, focussing on the quality of each room, and abundant natural light the new garden brings into the home. Removing close to a third of the roof, the built fabric has been carved away to create a central landscaped courtyard, with new windows and doors bringing sunshine, air, and greenery deep into the carefully rationalised plan now open to the sky.
The interiors are resplendent in luxurious materials, sculptural forms, and rich, earthy tones. An arched double-height void acts in perpendicular conversation with the burgundy marble kitchen counter and rounded windows that mimic its form, framed in deep red steel – part of a colour palette of warmth, sophistication, and comfort.
