Having started as a simple refurbishment of the lower level living area the project became a full-fledged overhaul when the architects realized that the fundamental structure of the house was unsound. The new living area contains the kitchen sitting zone and dining area on the lower level of the residence that opens up towards the rear patio.
The front pavilion with its large glass doors opens up completely towards this majestic courtyard and even the kitchen and dining space seem constantly connected with the natural heaven outside.
As is the norm in most modern homes the architects rely on large sliding glass doors to create this seamless transition from the industrial-modern living area to the grand courtyard. Corrugated siding metallic surfaces a live edge dining table and colorful artwork fashion an interior that retains an air of edgy industrial style despite its relaxing ambiance.
The resulting home is a fusion of the very best from both design philosophies as timeless architectural features are combined with trendy modern overtones. Textured plastered walls false ceilings that showcase the warmth of wood and iron and stone features were added to the modern interior to give it a more traditional sheen.
We absolutely adore modern urban homes that bring along with them a slice of green goodness to otherwise sterile and lifeless city scenery. Nestled in one of the more tranquil neighborhoods of Australia the feels like a reclusive and serene escape draped in a beautiful garden landscape.
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!
Essentially the creative 4-story house brings together a bit of modern comfort classic charm and natural freshness without ever committing to a single style fully! An industrial staircase and the use of concrete walls adds to the textural contrast even as the bedrooms showcase unassuming minimalism.
