Rainforest residence is the perfect caption this home immersed in the treescape and seascape.
Tucked away in the foliage of Australia’s Noosa National Park, this rainforest residence is an epitome of tropical tranquillity. The once disconnected 1980s holiday home has been refurbished by Mim Design as a modern sanctuary that encapsulates its idyllic surrounds, aptly named ‘Edge of the Rainforest’. It is a place of retreat to relax, slow down and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
Across three levels Mim Design have revamped both the exterior and interior. The primary focus of the design process was to be considerate of the tropical environment, first addressed in the layout. Mim Design reworked the home to accommodate an expansive kitchen and a basement entertaining area, topped with a fourth bedroom and ensuite. Of course at no stage were the lush surrounds forgotten, instead they’ve been built into the kitchen clear glass splashback and linked by the balcony extension. The black-frame windows capture both the view of high palm branches and undergrowth, with unobtrusive shutters to appreciate fresh air and filtered natural light.
Stripping away the artificial and privileging the coastal throughout, Mim Design have complemented the striking greenery from the outside with a palette of the neutral and navy. To attune the home with its beachside locale, the interior relies on the smoothness of marble, smoked oak floors and white lining boards as joinery. It is a refined reflection of easy living and the perfect blend of shared and private, speaking with refreshing comfort in soft furnishings. There is no lack of quiet space, with cosy nooks ready for you to curl up, reflect and rejuvenate.
