Following an enquiry to refresh and repurpose specific areas of Triple Seven, Wayne Parker Design set out to re-envision the interior of the 68-metre motoryacht. The project demanded a new owner’s suite on the upper deck alongside a complete refresh of the old and tired finishes in key areas of the yacht. These included the original master suite, guest bedrooms, main saloon, dining room and snug. The proposed design brings new life to the superyacht while remaining sympathetic to the existing details.
Drawing on the owner’s love of Japan and the country’s architecture and traditions, Wayne Parker Design has created a tasteful balance between the existing interior décor and the newly conceived owner’s upper deck. This space — which sees the reconfiguration of the sky lounge into a new, much larger, His owner’s area — can be completely closed off from the rest of the yacht. It includes a master suite, bathroom and office.
Embracing the existing colour palette, the design team created a calming environment with distinctive Japanese themes carried throughout His owner’s new space. The use of fluid patterns on the ceiling within the bathroom and office, and in the cream Oliver Treutlien carpet of the bedroom mimic that of a Zen Garden. While the light-coloured wooden strips that feature on furniture, walls and ceilings are reminiscent of bamboo, which is symbolic in Japanese culture. All of this combined with stunning artworks such as the Koi fish mosaic motif in the walk-in shower, offer a flavour of the region without overpowering and dominating the rest of the yacht’s interior.
Applying a similar theme to the original master suite, the room has been transformed into a more feminine space for Her owner’s area. This has been achieved with light-coloured material changes applied throughout including the bed base, carpets, TV cabinet and wall panelling behind the bed. The design also sees the replacement of furniture to further soften the room while maintaining the original structural layout.
The brighter, more contemporary theme of the design has been tastefully carried over to the rest of the boat including the main saloon, dining area and snug. Without altering too much of the existing architecture, Wayne Parker Design has conceived new spaces by making distinctive changes to fabrics and furniture that elevate common areas. In the main saloon, the carpet has been removed and replaced with wooden flooring, while curtains have been put in place and fabric added to the walls. All surfaces have been softened to reduce sound vibrations, as the saloon doubles as a cinema.
The panels around the dining table have also been softened with leather patinated blocks that add interest and warmth. This area also has new curtains and furniture to make the space more comfortable and relaxing to that of the original design.
Meanwhile guest cabins have been completely transformed with new bed bases, headboards, carpets and loose furniture. These additions have been done in a way that maximises the visual impact without making changes to all surfaces or altering the layout of the guest suites.
