Architectural statement

“My home shall be open for the sun and the wind and the voices of the sea – like a Greek temple – and light, light, light everywhere!” – Axel Munthe, Villa San Michele.

I always dreamed to build on the edge of a high cliff ridge as Edgeciff. A place where you look out from your balcony and the world below is a miniature. It is very much like living on the edge of the world. A place for contemplation must have large balconies to pay tribute to the Sydney climate allowing an “indoor-outdoor” lifestyle all year round.

We developed a slender design with some graceful curves to give a slight nod to Brasilian Modernist Oscar Niemeyer but instead of using primary colour accents Luigi Rosselli Architects and interior designer Romaine Alwill chose to take inspiration from the local setting, opting for natural finishes, stone reused from site, clay bricks feature screens and earthy textured renders and materials to give depth.

The developer, Primo Development, have been committed from the start to create a premium quality residence that follows the design concept, and to pay homage to its surrounding. LRA and Primo Development has previously created two award wining apartment buildings in Bellevue Hills and work as a team towards a very high standard of design.

Sydney as a geographical entity is very much a mixture of surf, harbour, and cliffs. Within a 60minutes drive you can be out in the Blue Mountains, and in 6min you are by the sea. It is different from any other place in the world, and with a sense about living on the edge of a continent. You’re at this kind of juncture of a tectonic plate. The idea that the Pacific Ocean is right behind us, conceptually, is an interesting place to be.

Interiors statement

The interiors feature a richly textured palette of neutral tones and finishes showing off organic shapes and forms that are signature to Luigi Roselli’s work. Dovetailing with Alwill Interiors overlay of warmth and use of authentic natural materials, this elegant palette is timeless, subtle yet modern and rich at the same time. Natural timbers combined with concrete detailing and bronze accents create a luxurious yet grounded and calm interior.

Fittings are modern with expressed details to layer up the interior and the use of soft lighting and tonal colour create an understated interior and base palette for any style of decorating. A deep understanding of integrating architectural forms and interior elements is the strength of unity for LRA and Alwill Interiors in this project.
