The two central pieces of this dramatic home grace the dining space that sits next to the living area with a TIE Fighter-inspired dining table and the bright red Darth Maul double-bladed lightsaber.
Understated modern décor and large open areas that flow into one another ensure that the kids have plenty of space to explore and enjoy in an unhindered fashion. Sliding glass doors and large windows bring in the outdoors beautifully even as large sheer curtains filter out harsh sunlight on hot summer days. Efficient and responsive to the ever-changing needs of the young family there is plenty to like about this smart Aussie home!
It is the top floor that houses the luxurious master suite where the bedroom and bathroom become one visually even as two dashing bronze mirrors above the floating vanity steal the spotlight.
The project involved the complete transformation of the dining room living room and music lounge with the homeowners demanding an interior filled with glitz glamour and a sprinkling of Oriental elements in between all that Art Deco goodness.
The old laundry space evolved into the new open plan living area that is connected with the rumpus room dining area and of course the lovely yard. The new and the old combine here effortlessly with much of the original structure being preserved and given a modern sheen so that it blends in with the relaxing contemporary style.
It is a delicate balance between openness and privacy that is achieved with these masterfully crafted screens with the raw concrete next to it adding another interesting textural and visual element. On the inside one sees an open plan living area on the lowest level that flows into the timber deck and pool area outside.
The fifth-floor apartment has a more industrial-retro feel to it with exposed concrete walls and an iron frame-coated glass closet setting the mood indoors. Space-savvy décor and smart lighting complete the interior where comfort is coupled with ergonomics in an efficient fashion.
