A serene water feature adds to the tranquility of the space and large sliding glass doors lead the way into the double-height dining space. The lower level of the house also features a smart living space and a modern kitchen with a generous serving area.
Featuring five bedrooms and seven bathrooms the house has obviously been crafted with the growing needs of the family in mind. Contemporary architecture is as much about taking advantage of the amazing landscape outside as it is about shaping exquisite interiors.
The ground floor kitchen patio and dining space and the second floor living area are visually connected with the outdoors thanks to this sparkling glass addition. The top three floors house the exquisite master suite along with other private quarters.
Taking this up gleefully and coming out with flying colors is Shaun Lockyer Architects which has given an old cottage in a bright new lease on life. The transformed and improved Aussie home is now an inviting family residence in a valued neighborhood of the city and combines unhindered city views with ample privacy.
The trendy living room faces the apple tree the relaxing master bedroom the cherry tree the spa-like bathroom faces the peach tree the guest room the silver spruce and the children’s room the walnut tree! Letting the green landscape and nature define the overall appeal and orientation of the house the is indeed all about the outdoors.
An imaginative design and exemplary balance between wood glass and concrete give the home its unique ! While the penthouse level offers amazing views of the city skyline and the Highline park the glass addition brings the sights and sounds of the changing seasons indoors in an unabated fashion. Timeless decor like the Tulip table and chairs along with the iconic LEM Piston Bar Stools complete this chic home.
While the focus largely remains on the outdoors the interior matches the elegance of the view with the use of unassuming neutral shades that gracefully play second fiddle to the panoramic views. Black cream and white are the three prominent shades used to fashion a relaxed and serene setting.
