Few inner city suburbs offer as much contrast in terms of the views on offer as in Brisbane Australia and designed to perfectly take advantage of this diversity is the Fifth Avenue home by O’Neill Architecture.
Some home renovations demand modern design solutions that replicate their existing style while there are others that go beyond the mundane and present a truly fascinating and exceptional marriage of contrasting styles.
One can easily see a blend of rustic elegance and industrial overtones that are so unique to the region inside this space-savvy cabin. It is the top floor that holds the open plan living space with an ergonomic kitchen a small dining space and a spacious deck that serves as an additional dining zone.
With a steel frame a low supporting wall onto which the cabinets and workstation from bulthaup were fixed and sliding glass doors the new kitchen is a truly awesome setting that is both cheerful and functional. The old kitchen inside the home was transformed into a light-filled foyer that now leads the way to the kitchen even as the double-glazed glass walls help in temperature control.
Vivacious and colorful finishes coupled with modern Nordic style and comfy décor complete a casual resourceful and inimitable family home where every little detail has been tailored keeping in mind both the present and future needs of its denizens.
The luxurious in is no different as it embraces the outdoors gleefully even as the design of the house amalgamates stone concrete and wood in a seemingly effortless and seamless fashion.
By placing the living area on the top floor architects aimed to make the most of the unabated view on offer while ensuring that the lower-level bedrooms do not face the brunt of the summer heat. A lovely master bedroom a cool kids’ bedroom with custom bunk beds and a bathroom complete this exceptionally charismatic cabin.
