Home of the Month

The external facade of this contemporary home incorporates a modern composite design using James Hardie Scyon “Matrix”, contrasting face brick work, Colourbond roofing and wall cladding and smooth finish painted rendered masonry. External lighting has been well planned and placed to highlight architectural features of this home at night.

The internal design of the house was factored around the excellent access to a northerly aspect for solar passive living. The focus of the design was to create an open spacious plan, with an emphasis on a light and airy, fresh and funky feel utilising the fantastic solar access.

The kitchen, which is the focal point of the main living area, was to complement the contemporary lounge and dining room furniture.

Different styles of lighting were employed in both the cabinetry and the walls as well as in the ceiling to allow the home owners to create a variety of different mood lighting.

The owners were very particular on certain design elements. Hallways were to be eliminated, the living/dining areas were to flow onto an undercover outdoor alfresco area, a walk in concealed butler’s pantry was to be incorporated in the kitchen, and an upstairs parents retreat was to have the feel of an upmarket hotel room with enough room for a lounge and coffee table. The ensuite and robes were to be open to the bedroom. The bathrooms were to have walk in showers with stunning wall hung vanities.
