But the fabulous renovation goes well beyond the mere expansion of available interior space thanks to the eco-sensitive energy and utility systems which cut back on power consumption and make life here a lot more sustainable.
Move beyond this and you will notice the use of a stone accent wall that veers away from the contemporary narrative and yet seems to fit in with the modern setting all too easily! It is the wooden décor pieces though that clearly steal the spotlight here as they usher in textural and geometric contrast without ever disturbing the serene ambiance of the home.
Gorgeously crafted garden stretches add to an already energetic living room that is filled with a bright blue couch orange and green chairs and a large sofa that provides ample sitting space. Even the open glass shelves in different colors accentuate this appeal of playful contemporary panache that is carried through into the dining space and the kitchen.
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.
Space is definitely not an issue here with the two large volumes being connected by a narrow bridge on the top level even as the lower level is left as open as possible. The gorgeous pool area wooden deck and backyard become a visual part of the interior even as the private zones are housed on the top floor. An engaging roof terrace and modern lighting complete a cheerful residence that reinterprets the classic MiMo style in a grand manner.
While the top level of the house seems to float in air ever so elegantly the basement of the cottage is firmly anchored in the Canadian Shield giving it plenty of stability that is key to the expansive upper level design.
Designed by La Design Studio the suburban home aims to bring nature indoors not just with a great courtyard and garden space but with every level of the house adding a hint of greenery to create a refreshing and cheerful ambiance.
