MacMasters Beach House

Central Coast, NSW

While the exterior of this villa-style home on the Central Coast is emblematic of 1980s architecture, Greg Natale revives the interior with contemporary flair for modern family living.

Beyond the stone mosaic threshold and into this postmodern palace built in 1985, original columns and custom terrazzo floors lay the foundation for modern, open-plan living. The owners are collectors of contemporary art with an appreciation for postmodern design cues who requested as little interfere with the homes original structure as possible. Greg Natale began with palette of white and blue-green tones evoke a clean, gallery-esque feeling, before adding layers of soft furniture upholstered in orange and deep reds for a comforting, liveable warmth. Playful nods to postmodern aesthetics are made throughout, including custom shelving finished in a swirling veneer created by Ettore Sottsass.

Connecting the living and dining area with the new kitchen, still fitted with the original terrazzo flooring from the 80s’, is a feature wall of Calcutta Viola marble slabs, a reference to the Barcelona Pavilion. Abiding by a modernist grid of the home’s structural architecture, Greg Natale built walls of marble around what was originally a kitchenette, creating a concealed scullery space before turning the designated dining area into a show kitchen equipped with a custom island and fitted with fluted joinery serves to provide a casual, family-style dining experience.

Through modern finishes and an expressive use of colour, Greg Natale reimagines the playful postmodern aesthetic in a contemporary setting with a stylish twist.
