aniela Simon has always catered to clients
who are genuinely interested in living a
‘different’ kind of Australian dream.
Daniela started her design and architectural
company Sodaa in 2002 in order to create homes
that allowed a sustainable, eco-friendly lifestyle.
The company offers design at various stages,
ranging from initial sketches only up to entire
projects from design to end of construction.
WEST PERTH HOME
Daniela was asked to transform this tall, white,
box-like penthouse into a showpiece with soul.
While the interior remains mostly white,
splashes of colour were added to complement
the chocolate browns of the major furniture
pieces and add a sense of play and vibrancy.
The intimate and engaging home was designed
by Eames Architects and has a main bedroom on
a mezzanine level, an open-plan kitchen/living/
dining area with an adjacent outdoor terrace, two
bathrooms and a study.
One of the bedroom’s walls is wallpapered
with silk painted with a Japanese motif to
maintain a luscious yet understated feel.
Large empty spaces are illuminated with
appropriate light-fittings and Carrara marble
to create a warm environment that changes
its colours throughout the day and night.
One of the key features of the home is
the large tile mosaic on the southern facing
exterior wall of the terrace. It is highly visible
from both the interior and street level, and
symbolises eternal youth.
“SPLASHES OF COLOUR
WERE ADDED TO
CHOCOLATE BROWNS OF
THE MAJOR FURNITURE
PIECES AND ADD A SENSE
OF PLAY AND VIBRANCY”
The ultimate bachelor pad for
entertaining and living in the fast
lane, this penthouse exudes style
and a love for design, and maintains
an interesting and engaging interior.
