Alisa and Lysandra Fraser team up with Neolith to create an idyllic alfresco space at a stunning waterfront location.

Alisa and Lysandra Fraser, former contestants on The Block Australia and co-founders of the Alisa & Lysandra Interiors, were determined to create a stylish, hard-wearing space in Queensland, Australia, that would allow the owners to enjoy outdoor drinks and meals year-round. Alfresco dining is an intrinsic part of Australian culture, so Australians are looking for ways to incorporate outdoor dining spaces into their homes. 


For the Interior Designers, the epitome of a well-designed alfresco combines beautiful aesthetics with sturdy products and sustainable materials, so they needed for this project cutting-edge architectural surfaces that provided functionality and harmony, and they included sintered stone surfaces from the global leader of sintered stone Neolith.


Functionality is everything


The Paradise Point project is an extension of a 4-bedroom property that features lots of natural light, high ceilings, two living areas, a theatre, a cellar and a pool. With an area that is exposed to the elements like weather and sunlight, they needed to select sturdy, long-lasting products that could withstand all of this and more, so it was important to use high-performance surfaces designed to withstand heat, stains and UV radiation. 

Pick the right materials

Alisa and Lysandra Fraser chose Neolith’s Strata Argentum for the countertop – a surface that is highly durable, has zero porosity, and is backed by cutting-edge technology. The selection of this surface was also made to fit with a colour scheme that harmonised with the rest of the interiors, so Alisa and Lysandra combined an array of colours and textures in order to create a warm, tranquil space filled with personality, whilst remaining consistent with the interiors’ distinctly urban feel.


Stone was featured throughout, and complemented by a marble-look splashback and a countertop that emulates the look and feel of Italian silver travertine. These strong, statement features were softened with darker tones and elegant brass details. They also combined dark, charred timber cabinetry with soft, silky grey surfaces and Himalaya Crystal, marble-look splashback from Neolith. 


The project aimed to be a place with a really relaxing, fun vibe, highly usable and perfect for an impromptu BBQ or drinks with friends and, at the same time, that would allow a perfect mixture with the natural environment positioned in a magnificent waterfront location, which they achieved by using luxury materials with a sustainable character.
