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.
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.
This stylish Aussie home is spread across two different structures that are linked by a common hallway and this allowed the architects to conquer the unique challenges that the sloped lot presented. In fact it is the topography of the site and sunlight that define the overall silhouette of this breezy home where the traditional lines between the interior and outdoors are blurred eloquently.
Large glass doors and skylights bring in ample ventilation across the various levels of the overhauled interior with simple finishes in contrasting textures making an impressive yet understated visual presence. A space-savvy staircase with steel mesh connects the mezzanine level with Juno’s bedroom and the top level studio.
Even though the beautiful home is devoid of bright and vivacious color warm wooden surfaces provide the necessary visual and textural contrast to a distinctly cultured interior. The newly added units seamlessly blend in with the existing duplex while the street façade exudes timeless charm with its lovely brick demeanor.
