How often do we think about the design of the roof when it comes to home design? It definitely does not top the list of design aficionados and many of us just tend to accent that flat linear plane as the roof.
A glass pergola roof connects the main living area with the guest rooms while a central courtyard along with the pool and the garden interlink the separate units. A double height living area opens up to the outdoors with large glass doors and sweeping wooden windows allowing those inside to switch between unabated views and complete privacy.
It is barely a surprise then that this Aussie family wanted a similar functional kitchen that offered a gathering spot for everyone even while opening up towards the pool and deck outside. It is Dan Gayfer Design who transformed the by giving the house a new kitchen ensuite bathroom and cabinetry.
But the creative folk at Seeley Architects had an entirely different vision in mind as they started to chalk up plans for the spectacular in Kyneton. Allowing the landscape to visually become a part of the interior using a glazed structure the architects brought dramatic splendor to this family residence with a sinuous roof that turns heads and evokes a sense of amazement.
At this point the roof seems even more captivating as the olive groves and giant gum trees outside fill the backdrop with constantly changing sights and sounds. The living area and the open deck are gently cantilevered above the landscape with the bedrooms connected directly with the central courtyard.
