Mornington Peninsula Private Residence
In May 2014 we were contacted by Michael and Sandra Donovan in Victoria asking for our assistance with hard finish selections and furniture for their new private residence project on the Mornington Peninsula.
Their brief was a “resort-style’ home with an Asian feel blending indoor and outdoor elements to create a seamless space. The property was to be built on an elevated site adjoining the Trofeo Estate vineyards overlooking the bay at Mornington Peninsula. The property is within walking distance of the Trofeo Estate “Whispering Vines” Restaurant and is surrounded by vineyards, open pasture and lake.
Initially we worked with Michael and Sandra’s architects, Forgan Smith Architects, in selecting the hard finishes and reviewing the interior spaces. Once the building works commenced we worked directly with Michael and Sandra in selecting virtually everything for the property from the hard finishes to the paint finishes, to the furniture, to the soft furnishings, to the artwork and accessories. Our intention was to connect the massive modern architectural space to the natural elements that surrounded it.

Resortium’s Interior Designer George Plastiras, worked with us and our architect and chose all the hard finishes to create a resort style home in line with our brief. The residence is comprised of 2 living rooms, 2 dining rooms, a master bedroom & a guest bedroom both with en-suite bathrooms. In addition there are 3 self-contained bedrooms /pods, all with their own en-suites bathrooms, kitchenettes & private courtyards. Furthermore there are outdoor lounging, dining, sitting & pool-side areas.
The project took 2 years to complete as there were delays with the building works but Resortium worked with us throughout the entire process to ensure a smooth outcome. Their performance throughout was very professional, efficient and friendly and their attention to detail was excellent.
We highly and unreservedly recommend this firm for their inventive design abilities and high level of professionalism.”
