When entry to a master suite is via a walk-in wardrobe between bedroom and bathroom, it's apt to create a sense of both arrival and privacy.

This master suite by designer Jason Saunders of Arc Seven 1, the company that designed the whole house, takes just such a design route.

"With the wardrobe space straight ahead at entry, we designed a batten screen that rises and folds back above the doorway – effectively, screening the robe area and creating a dramatic arrival feature at the same time," Saunders says.

The suite offers a private, luxurious retreat with rich walnut millwork. This is repeated on the vanity front, though in another cut which shows off the wood grain to different effect.

"The warmth of the wood is complemented by the coolness of another natural material – the white, veined marble seen on the vanity benchtop and again as the plinth under the bath," says Saunders. "The marble plinth itself is also raised to optimise sea views for the bath's occupant."


Faced with a limited footprint, the bathroom has mirror-front wall cabinets and a mirror-clad column at the end – both bouncing natural light. On the other side of the room, the glass-fronted shower also opens to the deck the other way.
