Casa Luna is a special project for Biasol Studio, who won gold for this design in the 2022 Melbourne Design Awards. Nestled in the quiet community of Eaglemont, a Melbourne suburb, this stunning home has encourages peaceful energy flow through the use of feng shui.
The house name comes from the its inspiration of the moon and the night sky, alluded to in its layout and presented in its materials and muted colours.
The designers chose limestone, terrazzo, marble and granite with non-reflective finishes for the surfaces and used the colour palette to represent the yin-yang balance: the grays, whites and blacks of the moon are contrasted with the oranges, soft tans and pale pinks of the sun.
The pieces from our Milli Pure, Circa and Voda lines finished in LUXPVD® Rare Bronze fit perfectly within this design methodology.
In the kitchen, illuminated by natural light from the floor-to-ceiling glazing and surrounded by the black marble benchtop and dark brown wood cabinetry, the Milli Pure sink mixer and the Circa hob are a warm focal point in the open area. It’s the bathrooms, however, that truly show off how such a small detail like tapware can make a big effect on a space. The Circa Vertex hob mixer beautifully accents the power room’s expressive dark titanium granite benchtop while also blending in with the bathroom’s blush-coloured terrazzo.
For the master ensuite, framed on one end by a private, enclosed terrace, the Circa floor mount mixer glows from the sun and moonlight and becomes a rich beacon amongst the immersive charcoal grey limestone. To provide more unity throughout the home, as well as further illustrate of the quality of Sussex craftsmanship, custom door handles and brass details were also designed and manufactured. These elements sit within the balance of the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry, bringing tactility and another level of personality.
By using a feng shui consultant, the layout was planned for optimal qi (energy flow). On the exterior, light stucco and textured, dark gray timber were used to create strong, minimalist forms. The position of the first floor shades the open terrace and also creates the shape of a crescent while the courtyard created from the layout of the home connects the central interiors to the surrounding landscape and fills the space with natural light.
