Neolith’s Waipa Project by Matt South and Noel Jessop Architecture

The Waipa project by Matt South and Noel Jessop Architecture emerged as a response to a young family’s desire for a home which harmonised with both their dynamic rural surroundings and their busy lives. The result is a breathtaking oasis of country living which provides seclusion, tranquillity and – naturally – the most luxurious comforts of contemporary living.

Building in the country does not always mean you need to build something resembling a barn… This project was a close collaboration with the team at Noel Jessop Architecture, who designed an edgy and contemporary form that fit perfectly with the young, chic family who live here.

The interiors are a thoughtful response to not only the beautiful architecture, but also the dynamic Waipa vernacular. Relating the home to its rural setting was achieved with textural finishes and rich hues that only get better with time.

Matt South decided to draw from the hues and textures seen in the local vernacular, inspired by the client’s love of camping and bushwalking, to create a limited palette of finishes which were applied with sleek, contemporary precision. Among these, Neolith’s 12mm Mont Blanc adds an unexpected silken textural dimension to the kitchen bench and splashback – striking an artful balance between chic design and the natural landscape.

“Layering textures was important to capture that relaxed, easy living feel. Another focal aspect of the client’s brief was to curate a sense of flow throughout which strengthens the home’s connection to the family and wider landscape. Balance is everything: the angular architecture is softened with gentle curves throughout the home which harnesses this flow, along with that cohesive palette of materials and tones.” – Matt South
