A spacious kitchen with breakfast bar that overlooks the living area becomes the focal point of the new interior that encourages interaction between family members through seamless design. Design of the top level of the residence that combines classic form with modernity and a sense of lightness completes an understated and ingenious makeover which gives a home from early 1900s a new lease of life.
The contemporary residence was designed by Jobim Carlevaro Arquitetos keeping in mind the specific needs of the homeowners which included an open social zone and a dashing deck outside. To ensure that the living room dining area and kitchen flow seamlessly into the outdoor pool deck a basement level parking was designed along with space for utility rooms.
A modern lounge that links two traditional heritage structures that are part of a beautiful home is hardly the place where one would expect to see something as Audacious as the. Designed by Damian Rogers Architecture the sculptural silhouette of this dashing lounge stands out instantly even as the street façade of the house is left largely undisturbed. The glazed roof with metallic edge brings the greenery around the spacious lounge and the outdoor deck inside even while keeping out the hot sun.
The smart extension with the glazed roof also features a roof section that holds an edible garden. Giving the structure green credentials even while keeping the ambiance inside cool and pleasant the roof garden offers multiple array of benefits.
On the inside it is a series of open and close spaces stylish living areas where wooden warmth is combined with polished finishes and elegant contemporary décor that set the mood. The existing Queenslander was moved towards the neighboring two-story home while a single townhouse was added next to the series of three continuous dwellings to fit the entire development within the constraints of the limited site.
