Step inside and one sees a fusion of the dramatic and the understated the grand and the minimalist as a large expansive living area is draped in a variety of finishes that add subtle contrast to the breezy space. The lower level of the house contains the living area kitchen and dining space and natural light from the top floor floods into this space thanks to a large central opening.
Midcentury décor pieces are combined with modern furniture and accessories to bring together the best of both worlds even as large glass walls ensure that the outdoor deck and garden become a visual extension of the living area.
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.
Designed by Finney the charm of curved walls does not end there as the interior also offers a healthy dose of curvy masterpieces that celebrate the minimalism of the home while ushering in geometric contrast. White is the color of choice inside with the living area kitchen and dining room opening up towards the rear garden.
A relaxing courtyard pool and outdoor hangout flanked by two structures that allow you to switch between complete privacy and seamless connectivity with the outdoors – is a perfect example of a modern home crafted to meet the specific needs of its residents.
Salvaged bricks and sliding glass doors used for the tunnel along with the asymmetrical butterfly roof form the two exclusive features of the residence that let it stand out from the pack. Modern décor and a neutral color scheme combined with textural contrast further up the style quotient of this fabulous re-energized cottage Down Under.
The open living space on the lower level also houses a smart dining area and a contemporary kitchen with cabinets and a central island in white. Despite the obvious lack of color indoors it is the garden and woodlands outside that make up for this shortage as they become a visual part of the interior.
