The existing house was more than 100 years old and that meant that much of the revamp needed to happen in the rear living the street facade largely untouched. Then there are the constraints of space with most of these Aussie homes having a long narrow silhouette.
There is beauty in simplicity. This is especially true in case of home design and decorating. Instead of spending endless hours on complicated form and flowery overtones one can achieve an equally impressive result by sticking to the basics. Do not believe us?
Designed by PDP London Architect the projects consists of a series of 28 independent homes and villas that form a secure and beautiful little community surrounded by panoramic landscape.
Sitting next to a wetland and a golf course the exterior of this home designed by Auhaus Architecture is draped in raw concrete and natural hardwood. Despite the presence of the large glass windows and sliding walls it is the concrete structure that holds all your attention.
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.
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.
Concrete walls wooden slats and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass walls usual air of modernity. Natural ventilation and unassuming décor fashion a smart living environment where orthogonal geometry defines overall space.
The double height central zone leads the way towards the kitchen library and living zone where Nordic design and smart storage solutions hold sway. A dark stairway with built-in storage leads to the attic above which holds a serene and secluded relaxation and reading zone.
