And yet they all have that typical Aussie flavor with an interior that is rich in varied textures and seamlessly connected with the outdoors. Located in Wandi Australia is a smart private residence that incorporates all these traits that we’ve come to expect from a house. But this ingenious residence built by Webb & Brown-Neaves takes things a step further by brilliantly combining modern and rustic design elements to fashion a home that has a style of its own!
We often find amazing inspiration in life from the most unexpected sources and the ingenious folks at FMD Architects found theirs in the art of tapestry and stitching! Nestled in the iconic Australian city of the is a wonderful example of how one can creatively integrate the old with the new in a seamless fashion thanks to smart design solutions. Nestled on a lot that was just 5 meters (16.4 feet) wide the original was in urgent need of a stylish renovation and extension.
Combing luxurious and spacious interiors with smart design and the house has the appeal of a serene holiday retreat. The needs of every member of the house were taken into consideration while creating the various rooms spread across three levels and additional guest quarters were incorporated to ensure that the company did not feel left out either! A neutral color scheme is used throughout the residence with white and black dominating the space.
The top two levels feature four different bedrooms that include two principle suites and a couple of bunk rooms. Designed to serve as a wonderful getaway both in the winters and in summers for generations to come the Crow’s Nest perfectly complements the surrounding landscape while offering the best possible views of the mighty Nevada range.
Smooth concrete and beech plywood shape the interiors of the house while lumpy polyurethane foam covered in semi-gloss paint forms the skin of the house on the outside. Large glass windows are a defining trait of the house and let the constantly changing sights and sounds outside become an integral part of the interior.
