Each of these wooden behemoths helps in creating a stylish serene and secluded urban sanctuary even as an additional green wall adds to the overall ambiance. On the others side of the house one finds an inviting garden that becomes part of the open plan living area with kitchen and dining.
Think of home design and it is form followed by functionality that comes to mind instantly. For some reason this has become the norm globally. Very rarely do people venture beyond these two parameters and seriously ponder over acoustics.
The kitchen has always been the driving force that keeps the house running. But the last few years have seen a major revamp in kitchen design as it is no longer just a place to cook and serve meals. Modern kitchens are social settings that are being increasingly used as a bridge between the interior and the world outside.
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.
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.
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.
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.
