Banks Peninsula House by Lume Design


Located on a quite hillside in Banks Peninsula, the interiors of this holiday home were designed by Christchurch-based Lume Design. Expressing the owners passion for land and sea, the aesthetic engages with both through a subtle blend of coastal and Scandinavian style. Though effortless in appearance, the interiors are a result of a complex approach where each element of the design plays a vital role, while at the same time celebrating the architecture and liveability of each space.

Lume had completed the client’s family home in Christchurch shortly before commencement of this project, so were well attuned to their style, keen eye for detail and passion for design. The brief was to create a holiday home that was beautiful without being precious, a place to feel relaxed yet robust enough to withstand family life with children and dogs. Deliberately pared-back, the minimal furnishings include curated objects and sculptural statements to lift the home from 'kiwi bach' to beauty. 

In the kitchen a delicate yin-yang balance is achieved, with white finger tiles and V-groove cabinetry punctuated by black sockets and pull handles. Up-lights in the characteristic trusses wash the ceiling with a gentle glow at night, to complete this picture of intimacy and ease.
