But what really draws your attention at this modern-rustic home is the wonderful use of old brick warm wooden surfaces and smart bespoke lighting to create a refined and cozy fusion of contrasting styles.
Exposed brick wall sections in various rooms also add to the appeal of an otherwise contemporary setting with the lower level containing the living area and the top floor housing the bedrooms along with the kitchen and dining space.
The new kitchen and dining room are housed in the contemporary two-level addition that flows into the garden. A glazed walkway and beautiful green spaces further enhance the striking indoor-outdoor interplay that is completely altered after the nifty makeover.
Both the living area and the bedroom of the residence open up towards the tranquil curated and modern courtyard that is complete with a refreshing pool. Spread across two different levels a neutral color scheme concrete floors and a healthy splattering of marble backdrops and countertops ensure that there is no shortage of lavishness in the air!
A simple pathway and an irregular ramp shape the lovely entrance to the house where a large 4-meter-tall door in local Lapacho wood greets you gleefully. The interior is also draped in locally sourced Lapacho wood adding warmth and elegance to a contemporary setting that is otherwise dominated by white and other neutral hues.
This meant that the upper floor was incorporated into the hillside and the gradient of the lot turned into an advantage by simply using a step-wise arrangement of various levels. Despite these restrictions a lovely roof deck incorporated within a flat planted roof allows the homeowners to take in the sights and sounds of the serene island!
Essentially the delightful residence brings together a series of courtyards and open spaces bound by glass and stone walls to create a relaxing imaginative and exclusive interior. Apart from the obvious stone and glass presence it is the sturdy steel beams that bring another interesting dimension to this Aussie home even as the two butterfly roofs open up to bring in as much sunlight as possible.
