The dark exterior of the home stands in vivid contrast to the divine natural landscape that surrounds it and the more cheerful interior clad mostly in neutral hues. With a bold red door large window frames and a classic silhouette the residence exudes understated sophistication.
It is the double-height living room on the lower level that morphs into the heart and soul of the home with the dining area and kitchen on one side and the open outdoors on the other. Connected with the backyard pool area and the sweeping deck it has a relaxing outdoorsy feel and the open design with large glass doors and windows enhances this airy ambiance.
And if you’re looking for something a bit softer around the edges BMT’s egg-shaped Sea-Suite might fit the bill perfectly. The oblong design was actually first developed for a cruise liner terminal in Hong Kong but was reused to envision a series of beach homes and floating residences.
One of the most distinctive features of the home is its that is covered in steel and ushers in an air of timelessness to an otherwise modern structure. Turning a normal home in a multi-level residence with a lovely attic the design of the house by Dorrington Atcheson Architects fuses a distinct silhouette with seamless modern ergonomics.
Color scheme inside the residence is kept strictly neutral with white and gray being the prominent hues. Rugs with geometric patterning lighting and décor are used to delineate space in the open plan living area. Walls clad in ipe wood add warmth to the bedroom and the magnificent Pacific Ocean views turn this sophisticated home into a relaxing and fascinating escape.
Concrete plays a pivotal role in shaping the house and giving it a refined industrial style even as a cedar-clad accent wall offers visual contrast and inviting warmth. A spiral staircase leads to the top level that holds the kids’ rooms on one side and the master suite on the other connected by a concrete and glass bridge.
The dining room and kitchen of the once-boring cottage home now showcase a more modern sheen with large windows bringing the outdoors inside. A minimal bedroom with walls partly covered in oak and a bathroom in black and white borrow from the curated crisp and classy color scheme and style of the living space. Kids’ rooms with multiple storage options and a space-savvy design complete the transformation for the Sydney home that is a cultured urban delight!
