A Day Bukh Architects creation the smart Aussie home relies on a flood of natural light neutral color palette and pops of bright green to fashion an inviting sophisticated and relaxing living environment. An open hall living area dining kitchen form the core of the lower level public space with existing bedrooms being revamped to fit into the new theme and overall schematic. On the top floor new bedrooms take shape along with bathrooms as the windows open up to reveal unabated views of Sydney’s sparkling skyline.
It is the top level that houses the large living area which flows into the solarium and the pool deck outside. The arrangement of spaces is truly unique with emphasis being placed on a smart indoor-outdoor interplay where one complements the other. But the balance of elements does not end there with the solid concrete walls and flooring of the upper levels standing contrast to the seemingly weightless glazed ground level!
The fascinating journey into this beautiful house starts with the lowest level that holds the garage entry and a lovely garden along with private spaces that are cleverly hidden from public view. Step above to the first floor and you will find the open dining area and kitchen that are once again connected with the garden.
The main volume of the house in concrete and standing on steel columns contains two different levels and house the living area along with the main bedrooms. An entirely different volume contains the guest bedrooms along with the fabulous sauna and home spa.
Step inside and the main living area feels spacious and welcoming with a fully-equipped kitchen and dining area creating a breezy living zone. Custom furniture designed by Studio MM Architect add to the uniqueness of the home as the dining table and the sparkling metallic lighting fixture above it steal the show.
The limited footprint of the constructed area coupled with a need to design a home that left as much of the forest land as untouched as possible meant Storm Architects opted for a simple stylish and elegant modern structure. With a timber frame and larch cladding that is interlaced with large glass windows and modern finishes the home seems both classic and contemporary at the same time.
A smart platform provides solid base for the home and is integrated with the living room fireplace chimney and the concrete seating next to it. The platform extending beyond the confines of the living area acts as a natural patio and connects the interior with the outdoors in a seamless fashion.
