The lower level of the home contains the kitchen dining and living spaces (as is the norm in most homes) with folding and sliding glass doors connecting these areas with the garden.
You can find everything that one normally comes to expect from Japanese design here as a neutral color scheme cleverly used shoji screens organic finishes and lantern-style lighting fill the space with inviting warmth. But what truly sets this home apart is the ‘Doma’ that wraps itself around the living area creating a wonderfully unique indoor-outdoor interplay.
But it is the central courtyard that is the true showstopper here as it becomes the heart and soul of this Aussie home where life outside seems far more alluring than indoors! Turning the natural slope of the site into an advantage the interior features a stepwise arrangement of spaces with each one flowing into the next.
It is not very often that we come across homes with a curved wall or two as the world around us seems to be obsessed with simple straight lines when it comes to home design. But this exceptional home in Australia goes down this less explored path as it transforms a 1970s home into a modern delight even while highlighting its beautiful curved wall that becomes a part of the entrance. Draped in Woodform Timber Batons and highlighted using fabulous accent lighting the home features a revitalized entrance that sets it apart from others in the neighborhood.
Nestled in the suburb of Australia this fabulous and striking Victorian home extension and refurbishment treads a similar path as Robson Rak turn an aged and dark interior into a refreshing relaxing and energized setting.
