The distinctive design of the residence came about by combining the homeowners’ desire for a multi-generational home that will serve them well for years to come with the vision of the architects that tapped into the 17-degree slope of the lot. It is the ground level that contains the sparkling glass-walled central kitchen dining and living space that flows into the green garden and pool area outside.
We absolutely adore modern urban homes that bring along with them a slice of green goodness to otherwise sterile and lifeless city scenery. Nestled in one of the more tranquil neighborhoods of Australia the feels like a reclusive and serene escape draped in a beautiful garden landscape.
If there is one unmistakable trend in the world of home design it is structures that are enriched by the landscape that surrounds them even as they brush aside the conventional line between the interior and the world outside.
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.
While it is stone that shapes the home on the outside the interior presents a more curated look with traditional elements meeting modern ergonomics. Exposed timber surfaces in the family room and bedrooms usher in inviting warmth while neutral hues coupled with bright accents shape the living area.
The simple structure of the home ensures that the entire family can enjoy an extended ‘family zone’ while soaking in the sunlight and relishing the multitude of sights and sounds outside. The marquee protects this glass edifice even while creating shaded walkways between the different wings of the home.
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.
