This South Perth residence offers a distinct sense of luxury and comfort. Split over three levels, the living and entertaining areas are focal, relating to the home’s picturesque location to capitalise on views, natural light and breezes. The home’s modern exterior is articulated through the intersection of glazed planes and volumes, anchored by a vertical stack sheathed in travertine stone. Garaging is discreetly positioned at basement level with direct access to the home.
A generous entry gallery with travertine flooring reveals a timber staircase to the upper level, with a dramatic void inviting glimpses to the spaces above. United with alfresco and terrace spaces, the ground and first floor living areas allow for indoor/outdoor entertaining and flexibility of living. The open plan of the first floor features a sleek, modern kitchen and a travertine-clad fireplace in the adjacent dining area. The extensive use of natural materials, including recycled bridge posts, marble and timber, bring a mellow warmth to the otherwise crisp, modern home.
Commercial windows with double-glazing and deep-reveal slot windows maximize summer heat gain, provide discreet privacy and maximize views. Efficient cross ventilation is achieved via automated window awnings, which provide a high level of thermal comfort and ensures maximum advantage is taken of the outdoor lifestyle. The sense of spaciousness and the casual air of the home that these features provide, foster a laid-back yet luxurious home life for the clients and their visitors.
