Nestled in a leafy neighborhood of New South Wales Australia the Pavilion House fits this billing perfectly as Alex Urena Design Studio conjured up and created a contemporary home that is draped in greenery.
A stunning central courtyard and pool area become the main social zones of the second level of the house that also contains the living area kitchen dining room pantry terrace and a guest space. It is the first level beneath it that houses both the parents and kids’ bedrooms.
With the interior also adopting the European Country style it is easy to see why a family vacation here would seem much different from any other log cabin or mountain home in the region. Brilliant sconce lighting lovely lantern-style pendants and smart uplighting elevate the timeless traditional aura of this charming and lavish ranch residence.
Essentially this is a fusion of contrasting styles eras and architectural principles done in a flowing and seamless fashion. While the exterior of the original home is largely left untouched it is the interior that undergoes a complete makeover.
If you felt a touch incredulous on being told that this sophisticated contemporary home in is actually a traditional 1970’s bungalow then it would be completely understandable. Such is the dramatic transformation of this private residence that has been completely altered to meet the demands of a modern lifestyle.
