Architect and builder Jesse Bennett with wife and interior designer Anne-Marie Campagnolo designed their own custom home with a simple notion in mind to create a series of joyful spaces to inspire and enrich daily life.
Set in tropical north Queensland, the custom home embraces the natural landscape of the rainforest and utilities passive design strategies.
Adopting a highly personal approach in both the design and construction of their custom home allowed Jesse and Anne-Marie to develop various custom finishes, fixtures and bespoke furniture. One particularly treasured piece is the pink curved couch, which wraps elegantly around the perimeter of the TV room, providing generous seating with an unusually delicate, streamlined silhouette.
‘It’s our favorite piece of furniture, as we designed and built it ourselves’ says Jesse.
Jesse goes on to state that ‘The shapes allows for different vistas out through the landscape, as well forming a great conversation pit’. One of the best parts of living in their home is the integration and embrace with the surrounding tropical climate.
‘We hear the rainforest sounds and see the changing growth of the forest through the seasons’ Jesse explains. ‘It’s really beautiful and serene – and makes us feel both inspired and thankful everyday’
