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.
It is the top floor that contains the bedrooms and other private quarters even as the two pavilions are connected with one another through a cool central axis! Sweeping double-height living spaces luxurious bedrooms and iconic décor such as the Barcelona lounge chair and the Louis Ghost Chair complete this smashing Aussie home.
Its proximity to the ocean ensures that the Azuris seems almost like an extension of the vast sea of blue and being surrounded by the riches of the reef turn this into an even more select escape!
But the real showstopper of the house is the way in which the front section offers wonderful views of the suburban skyline while the rear unit opens up towards lush green bushes. It is this transformation from the urban jungle to tranquil greenery that makes this Bardon home even more special! With a street façade that offers complete privacy and creative lighting fixtures that bring snazzy sparkle this family residence delivers comfort draped in a serene setting.
Dubbed the project utilizes a unique circulation court that ushers in ample natural light and ventilation even as the latest rooftop volumes adjust and adapt to its presence. It is the lower level of the house that contains the living area and kitchen connected with the rear yard along with the spacious dining room.
The choice of the finishing material for the front-façade was determined largely by the aesthetics of the home its specific requirements and of course the tiny budget on which Mork Ulnes Architects had to pull off the impressive overhaul.
Custom-crafted wooden lattice panels with a steel frame were used to add sliding doors that blur the line between the interior and the world outside. The clever use of metal acoustic tiles and a breezy and cheerful ambiance along with comfy contemporary décor complete this stylish Brazilian retreat.
