Enveloped in a series of water features that even find their way indoors this does feel like a modern-day castle with its cool entrance that features a sleek bridge above a koi pond. Step inside and you will be awestruck by a floating walkway and a staircase next to it that hover above an indoor pond. Designed by Greg Shand Architects this multi-generational home captivates at every turn!
Think of an eclectic setting and many of us tend to conjure images of ‘chaos’ as different styles come together to create an explosion of color and pattern. But this is a largely misinterpreted view of the style that basically allows you to express yourself freely without being rigidly bound by decorating conventions.
The bright and cozy modern interior relies largely on neutral hues warm wooden tones and a dash of concrete to create a unique and inviting ambiance. Timeless décor pieces like the Wishbone chair sit alongside more contemporary pieces even as warm lighting and a dashing two-story gallery atrium complete this sensible and stylish transformation.
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.
Specially crafted green zones with glass walls enliven various rooms of this wonderful and soothing house allowing the homeowners to escape the rush of a fast-paced urban lifestyle. And it is barely a surprise that life here is more about the outdoors than the luxurious interior!
Bedrooms and the master suite are tucked away in the lower level along with additional bathrooms and a deck. Opening up towards the natural garden this special design of the two levels ensures those inside always stay connected with the landscape.
A separate wing on the lower level contains the master suite and is connected with the main wing using a glass and steel walkway. A stylish fireplace delineates the dining area and family room on the ground floor even as a fascinating staircase steals the spotlight with its ingenious design that turns the space underneath into a Zen-style escape.
