When you build a place from scratch, the possibilities really are endless. After working closely with our client sorting through different ideas, we selected stone, timber and glass as feature materials and then flowed them through the entire property. Inside we opted for a handmade pivot door and highlights to create a grand entrance, white ceilings and led lighting to soften the timber and stone, and stone piers from floor to ceiling along with a stone fireplace to give the effect of bringing the outside in.
We fitted the kitchen with all the modern appliances and a butler’s kitchen to keep the mess out of sight and floored the living area with large 1200 x 600 porcelain tiles to give the area a spacious look. To weave in another unusual feature, we used timber stairs with a single mid stringer. With stacker doors and matching glass above, a free-flowing look was creating, again highlighting a sense of spaciousness.
The main bedroom features stone piers to continue the flow of stone throughout the house, spacious walk-in wardrobe and dressing room, along with corner glazing to expand the view of nature outside with a floating double vanity and soft lighting in the ensuite.
Outside we continued to feature the stone, timber and glass with rustic rafters and beams softened by the white ceiling. The glass creates a free flowing look from inside to out.
We opted for the environmentally sustainable comfort glass throughout the property and worked to improve the energy rating with clever use of heating, cooling and glare.
Everyone is pretty pleased with the end results—including us!
