Designed by Remy Architects the spacious home occupies and is spread across three gorgeous levels that are interconnected with a series of walkways and cleverly placed corridors.
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.
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.
Instead of one large structure the architects opted for two smaller volumes that make the most of the views on offer. The garden outside is filled with a variety of plants and lined with large stones and it seems to unite and bind the two volumes giving a sense of visual cohesion.
A home that is surrounded by lush green vegetation and overlooking a meandering river does sound like an enticing prospect that none of us would shy away from. But building a home in the dense Bushland of Victoria as it sits on the edge of a small cliff and overlooks the Yarra River is no easy task at all.
Designed by Disc Interiors the fabulous house was crafted to meet the specific demands of a couple where one was a landscape architect and the other a surfer. This is precisely the reason why a love for the outdoors becomes a central yet understated part of the narrative as each room adds colors of nature in its own unique way.
Space is often the biggest issue in most modern homes with many of us looking to find that extra square footage that we feel would make all the difference. But when it comes to a lovely vacation home on the beach one does not really need a whole lot of room and even the smallest can fill your idyllic summer afternoons with unabated joy.
