It is the ground floor that houses the open plan living area along with a small dining space and a fabulous kitchen with a beautiful marble island. The use of diverse materials and finishes such as marble concrete timber and metal throughout the house ushers in some much needed visual and textural contrast in an otherwise monotonous space.
Using two intersecting volumes the architects aimed to overcome the challenge of creating a stylish spacious and organic family home with a light-filled and airy interior. It is the lower levels of the two volumes that house the large living area and an additional family room along with a sleek modern kitchen in white and a lovely dining space.
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.
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.
Custom chairs and cool industrial lighting fixtures complete the impressive makeover. Most log cabins and mountain retreats borrow extensively from local architectural principles and design quirks to create a stylish relaxing and unique environment.
Terraced houses from the Victorian and Edwardian era are something of a common occurrence in reclusive inner city suburbs across Australia and when viewed from the outside seems absolutely no different.
Designed by Juma Architects the sparkling new residence has been crafted for a life of serenity and sophistication that borrows from the soothing ambiance of modern holiday retreats.
