Crafted to exude a sense of grandeur by DBALP the fascinating private residence is spread across three different levels and welcomes you with a lovely walkway a fish pond and a fabulous water feature with a fountain. Combining several different textures the house transitions between open and closed spaces as each one flows into the next in an effortless manner.
At the heart of this space on the lower level is the with metallic wires that add to its distinct silhouette. The smart staircase instantly captures your attention and offers textural and visual contrast.
And did I mention one of the most intriguing aspects of the house? I could see myself enjoying a good book by the fire while the wind and rain storm outside. Or maybe I’m daydreaming again.
The house is a stunning example of modern architecture and peaceful island living. It was designed and built to fulfill the wishes of a young Vancouver couple with two children. Nothing is too complicated inside.
The top floor of the house features the bedrooms and the bathrooms and while the views from the top level are limited the extensive use of wood gives the interior a warm cozy atmosphere. Elegant and functional this Sydney home puts practicality ahead of aesthetics.
A giant concrete wall with painted scenery anchors the central staircase that connects the various levels of the house and adds an interesting and unique visual. With mezzanine levels becoming popular additions in 2014 it is barely surprising to see the lovely mezzanine floor with a cozy reading nook in the corner.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms elegantly distributed over two stacked boxes perched on the rocky cliff. The open-plan kitchen and the living area have floor-to-ceiling windows to make sure you don’t miss the beauty of the scenery – the stunning lake and the surrounding mountains. But everything changes when you walk outside on the expansive roof decks and recharge your battery from this terrifically laid-back escape from the pressures of the real world.
