We absolutely adore the way that custom furnishings with glittering stainless steel and silvery finishes were added carefully to accentuate the splendid aura of each room even as mirrored finishes enhance the appeal of cheerful indulgence.
A striking open-tread glass and steel staircase replaces the existing stairway and leads to the upper ground level that holds a relaxing living space a banquette dining area and a kitchen with a glittering bronze-tiled backsplash.
The façade of the house is truly unique with a smart brick wall seamlessly blending in with its more contemporary surroundings. The thick brick wall was as much a functional addition as it was aesthetic with its presence keeping out harsh afternoon sunlight and excessive heat during those really hot summer days.
Bringing in plenty of natural light and giving the old home a brand new lease on life the lightweight extension does its very best to blend in with the existing brick façade even while showcasing elegant contrast. With the house being revamped even the rear garden and alfresco space were altered and given a fresh perspective with many of the indigenous ferns being carefully relocated and donated to Belgrave Square.
The lower-level living area of the house seems a lot larger than it really is as it flows into the outdoor social zone that is surrounded by a blanket of greenery. On the inside one sees a neutral color scheme with skylights and large windows bringing in an abundance of sunlight adding to the cheerful ambiance. A sculptural staircase that leads to the top floor is surrounded by a wall of books with the vertical space on offer being utilized completely.
Designed by Aamer Architects the striking residence is located in a busy neighborhood and in front of a bus stop making its open and exquisite design even more impressive. Shaped using raw off-form concrete and gorgeous teak screens from Bali the house has an open and cheerful ambiance that complements its breezy exterior to perfection.
On the lowest level one sees the living space / TV room that creates a vivacious and fun atmosphere with its semi-industrial style and iconic décor additions like the Wegner’s Papa Bear Chair.
