Understated luxury describes the sanctuary of Akitō Studio, a cleverly crafted, light-filled guesthouse that adds an income to a family home.
The one-bedroom studio is a large, open area that gives the owner flexibility to reorganise and reconfigure as and when she wants to. Personal touches add artistic flourish throughout. The flow from indoors to outdoors ensures a seamless, harmonious transition.
Who wouldn't want to stay in a light, airy space with beautiful full-height curtains, carefully chosen furniture and a pared-back, calming aesthetic? A gallery-white backdrop and warmth through timber gives a sense of light and space.
The vertical cedar-clad exterior hints at the warm-hearted modernist escape within. A landscaped area outside includes a private outdoor bathing area with a freestanding bath that's perfectly positioned to take in views across the gully.
