A fusion of Peter Staunton’s creative vision and the exquisite beauty of Art Deco-inspired décor from KOKET this is a sight to behold for everyone who adores a glamorous blast from the past.
Despite its seemingly unassuming appearance this ingenious home does all it can to keep energy consumption down to a bare minimum with the architects estimating no more than $15 worth of electricity and natural gas being utilized each month by the homeowners. Cutting back on its carbon footprint by utilizing passive cooling techniques a rainwater filtering system further enhances the green credentials of this ergonomic residence.
One of the biggest challenges during the design of this multi-level house was both its unique orientation and the flood of sunlight that entered the house because of the giant glass wall that connects the living area with the pool outside.
But the smart rear extension of the house offers much more than the 1.5-feet-deep . The sunken design of the living area also turns it into a lovely gathering space for friends and family and the open design of the new extension along with the corridor and kitchen ensure that there is a flood of filtered light indoors.
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.
Skylights that usher in a flood of natural light and smart artificial lighting complete an exquisite home where ergonomics and frugality take precedence over outlandish style and aesthetics!
One of the most interesting features of this house is the rumpus room that currently acts as the playroom. Connected with the deck living area barbecue zone and the yard adults in the house can keep an eye on the little ones spending their time here from pretty much everywhere!
