Hill House by Luigi Rosselli Architects and Decus Interiors

  • Luigi Rosselli Architects and Decus Interiors collaborate on this light-filled Sydney home, designed for a family of six.

    Offering enviable vistas of the Sydney skyline and harbour, Hill House sits just below Bellevue Hill. The family enlisted in the help of renowned Sydney architect Luigi Rosselli and studio at Decus Interiors both known for their distinctive, sculptural style to design a home that creates warmth and character through unconventional.

    The kitchen features the High Stool by Mater and the Indi Extra Large pendant by Articolo.

    Views of Sydney’s cityscape and foreshore unfold upon entry at the Hill House. The living room opens up onto a grand balcony, providing ample space to dine and entertain while enjoying the shimmering water below. Materials have been carefully considered throughout from a base palette of timber and travertine. Chocolate-coloured Argento floorboards from Tongue n Groove distinguish the entrance and accentuate the curvaceous staircase, while a neutral travertine tile provides a soft base in the shared spaces. 

    With custom profiled cabinetry and hardware designed by Decus Interiors, the kitchen exemplifies refined functionality. Designed with a large family in mind, Decus Interiors have incorporated premium Wolf kitchen appliances and a cleverly concealed pantry behind rippled glass doors. Black accents are featured throughout the kitchen; the Indi Extra Large pendant by Articolo and patinated bronze rangehood both adding contrast to the light and airy space. 

    The open plan dining and living room is partially separated by a practical bar area, complete with overhead rippled-glass storage. Custom wall panelling wraps the dining setting in a tactile envelopment of warmth and doubles as a discreet doorway. 

    It was important that the client’s personality was expressed throughout the home. A statement collection of unique artwork ranges from bold paintings to woven textile wall art, displayed in key areas of the home. Lighting also plays an important role in elevating interiors. A custom Lindsey Adelman Branching Bubble Light graces the staircase void, while wall sconces from Articolo add diffused lighting to the bathrooms and home office.

    Argento floorboards from Tongue n Groove run throughout the entrance and grand staircase, complementing the Lindsey Adelman Branching Bubble Pendant.

    The colourful powder room plays home to a brushed black chrome Vola tap and the Fizi Ball Sconce by Articolo.

    Making Australian House & Garden’s 2019 Top 50 Rooms Award, the powder room is an ode to Decus Interiors’ daring approach to colour and texture. Blush pink leather tiles form a delicate backdrop for the Cippolano vanity creating an arresting explosion of colour. 

    Placing a spotlight on collaborative brilliance of Luigi Rosselli Architects and Decus Interiors, the Hill House is equal parts functional and bold as it bows down to its harbour views. 

    The living room features the Redondo Armchair designed by Patricia Urquiola.
