Jarrod and Sofie’s journey began with a modest home in Burleigh Waters, a blank canvas that quickly turned into a labour of love.

Introducing Cora.

“The meaning of Cora is ‘Core’ and ‘Heart’ which played a huge part in our design brief to create a family home.”


With a reverence for enduring design the couple’s vision avoided fleeting trends to create a home with purpose, intrinsic beauty and simplicity. A forever home that stands the test of time.

Cora embodies this ethos blending the timeless allure of contemporary minimalism with an abundance of soft curves and warm natural light. Clean lines, uncluttered spaces and a gorgeous muted colour palette combine allowing each element the space to shine in its own right.


This is a home where form follows function with effortless grace. Inspired by the fluid lines of nature, the meticulous selection of natural materials perfects the contemporary minimalist aesthetic.

At centre stage sits our very own Daino Reale marble. This exquisite natural stone has a creamy beige base with soft subtle veining. It has a luxurious polished finish that adds a sense of refined elegance to the space.

“We wanted to select a stone that was unique which is why we chose Finestone.”


In Cora, the Daino Reale proves the perfect choice catching the natural light beautifully, its earthy palette creating even more warmth and natural beauty.

“I love the beauty of natural stone and the way it makes you feel when you walk into a space. The texture, tone and array of colours, and beautiful patterns.” says Sofie

The marble starts in the kitchen and extends through to the bathrooms and laundry, creating a unifying harmony through the home making every space feel uniquely special.

It is clear in this home that at the heart of every design decision is a sense of purpose. Cora is the perfect blend of abundant natural light, minimalist form and earthy textures. Each element has the space to breath, creating a calm inviting home that finds a solace in the beauty of simplicity.



We are both so excited for our next challenge, we plan on transforming homes on the Gold Coast for years to come. We both have a passion for design and construction and this is only the beginning!
