Creating a dynamic and cheerful new interior that completely altered the vibe of this 1960’s single level beachside residence in Sydney the creative folk at Look Interior Design managed to balance privacy with unabated ocean views.
Wood plays a major role even in shaping the entrance of the townhouses the staircase on the inside and various ceilings and accent walls in different rooms. Street façade of the house offers complete privacy while the living area with flows effortlessly into the beautiful private yard.
Altering both the visual appeal and functional form of a home that was originally built in 1905 Baukultur/ca turned a seemingly ordinary home in into a cheerful bright and inviting modern residence. Both the new interior and the exterior rely largely on elegant use of wood and a neutral color palette that employs white in an extensive fashion. It is the lower level that contains the new living area kitchen and dining space that tastefully flow into the gorgeous rear deck even as the top floor holds the bedrooms and other private spaces.
The transformation started with the revamping of the lower level to house an open plan living with a neutral color palette. With the clients wanting a relaxing beachside vibe inside the home white pops of blue and subtle coastal style accessories were carefully chosen to achieve the desired look.
Designed to make the most of amazing mountain and valley views even while offering complete privacy for those inside it is a custom timber and steel fence that steals the spotlight here. Wrapping itself around the entire lower level of the private villa the fence acts as the defining feature of the residence and helps create a micro-climate of sorts inside its confines thanks to a beautiful reflecting pool and ample greenery.
Designed by Klopf Architecture the modern family residence has a sloped roof that gives the street façade a low modest look even as the rear structure brings the outdoors inside with its wall of glass! Wood steel and concrete shape the energy-efficient interior where passive heating and cooling techniques LED lighting fixtures and smart insulation help cut back on the carbon footprint.
Designed by RUFproject a custom screen made out of Sapele wood slats shields the top level of the house from excessive sunlight and also provides necessary privacy. A beautiful entry combines different elements as the small reflecting ponds stone steps wooden door and bamboo garden well and truly bring home the Oriental vibe.
