Built for a young family, the client brief was for an architecturally unique home with industrial style elements that would take advantage of available views whilst still retaining privacy. Working on a sloping corner block with a significant north-eastern fall, this was a challenge not all would rise to but thanks to Luxus Homes the outcome is a sophisticated residence that utilises the sites obstacles to reveal the expertise of Luxus’ skilled team.
Concrete has been used extensively throughout the construction of the home, combining off form ground floor and roof slabs with concrete face block walls. This not only creates the industrial style aesthetic the clients desired but has the benefit of being thermally efficient. Taking full advantage of the sloping terrain, the cantilevered ground floor slab has been laid upon a graduated foundation that provides the single storey property with elevation that it would not otherwise have. Grey concrete blocks laid in a stack bond pattern and floor to ceiling louvered windows add a mid-century aesthetic to the homes exterior.
A suspended perforated, acoustic ceiling defines the kitchen area in the open plan living space. The warm hues of the oak cabinetry & timber flooring add appealing contrast to the starkness of the white walls, off form concrete ceiling and minimalist lighting.
The use of large floor to ceiling windows that have been strategically broken up with louvered panels to create both depth and ventilation, emphasise the connection to the outdoors, almost offering the impression that it is in fact one large open space.
Privacy is assured in the rear courtyard which features landscaped gardens and an outdoor shower. A striking feature of the courtyard is the architecturally designed curved cantilevered roof which mirrors the ground floor slab perfectly, creating a unique outlook when viewed from inside. This is just one of the many features that generate an outstanding example of the integration of Industrial mid-century architecture into a welcoming family home providing yet another exceptional property in Luxus’ impressive portfolio.
