A home to be lived in
From the outset, the brief was very simple, a bright contemporary ‘home’ that could really be lived in. The definition of ‘home’ was a warm liveable space that felt luxuriously contemporary without feeling cold.
The design utilises an internal courtyard as a central solar spine, surrounded by all the key living spaces, providing brilliant light penetration and instantly gives the home life.
A tiering floor plate, responds to the sites topography, creating a natural flow through the home, whilst the play on ceiling heights and double height voids define an otherwise open plan home.
Warmth is intertwined throughout the home with its natural material tones and the textural palate of concrete, timber, metallic bronze and natural stone.
“We want families to really live in our homes. It’s important to get the design aesthetic right, but equally important to make homes that are timeless and functionally liveable.” — Max Milosevic
