Wood is an element that dominates the visual of the house while stone and glass compliment it perfectly. Lush green outdoors and courtyard tempt you to spend more time on the deck than indoors. The luxurious bedrooms and the modern bathrooms are placed on the top two levels along with an exercise room and an open lounge.
The interiors are kept largely neutral in white and gray with a bright red accent couch in the living space stealing the show. Stylish use of skylights make sure there is appropriate natural light even in the private areas while an expansive deck to the north allows the residents to be at one with the bamboo and Japanese maple backdrop. A beautiful wooden staircase connects the lower level with the top floors and a concrete path above the water surface in the backyard makes for a cool walkway.
We have seen some beautiful houses located in historically significant neighborhoods get a modern makeover without disturbing the façade of the existing structure. Coming from Down Under in Melbourne the is another gorgeous example of seamless fusion between the classic and the contemporary.
Big bright spaces exposed to a heavy amount of daylight catch on a feeling of luxury while double-height spaces have this larger-than-life feel to them. When a double-height glass room contains colors they are subdued by the scale and openness. Carefully chosen furniture and design details cushions and even flower can brighten up a cold space and offer an elegance reminding you of the simple joys of life – like colors.
Contemporary features of the home were enhanced further by adding a stunning floating staircase with a glass railing. Interesting art work on the walls and the iconic Eames Lounger complete the transformation of House 1005 with style and sophistication!
