The home is partly built into the landscape with the lower levels containing the more private rooms and the master bedroom. It is the upper level that holds the living area kitchen and dining space which open up towards the garden area.
One of the immediate highlights of the interior that one notices is the split-level living area and the way its vast double-height presence becomes the overwhelming factor that shapes the house.
With gorgeous brick walls lovely wood flooring and ceiling and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that bring the outdoors inside life here is a blend of various textures at their brilliant best. Built by AM Architecture the feels like a modern reinterpretation of midcentury design even while ensuring that the leafy landscape outside always stays relevant.
Each of the homes might seem identical on the outside but step in and you notice the subtle variations in the floorplan wherever needed to make the most of the views on offer. Community living concept is coupled with privacy and healthy living at these Hong Kong homes.
Instead of polishing the rough and imperfect finishes of concrete the homeowners wanted to leave the little ‘imperfections’ intact. Next to the concrete surfaces is natural hardwood; a surface that brings warmth and elegance to the façade and the interior.

The in is one such beautiful contemporary residence where the house itself meanders its way through the landscape and becomes one with the world outside.
The common areas outdoor gardens and walkways between the two structures serve a space for relaxation while the new interior makes up in style for what it lacks in sheer volume.
Giving new meaning to styles from a different era is a task that requires careful amalgamation of contrasting textures finishes and design elements. Nestled in a tranquil neighborhood of a suburb of Melbourne and overlooking a green park this contemporary home feels anything but mundane and sterile.
