“We looked to express the French architectural technique of ‘enfilade’ through a colour palette inspired by the Australian landscape,” Nickolas says. Enfilade translates to a group of rooms arranged formally together – usually in a row with each room opening into the next. This technique is common in Nickolas’s work, calling forth a portfolio of highly functional, interconnected interior spaces. In MEJ Residence, the natural flow of space begins at the front, where warm, earthy tones – rusts, caramels and forest greens – reign. Transitioning into the rear of the home is where the cooler tones – blues, silvers and blacks – start to appear, anchored still to the familiar forest greens.
