Working with a challenging sloping site proved to be no obstacle for Perth home builder, Clarke Custom Homes, who recently completed this striking family home in leafy Booragoon. The home incorporates passive solar principals and modern industrial style into a generously sized 4 bed, 3 bathroom family home that has been designed to emphasize a connection with the external environment.
The home has a striking street presence. The hard angular lines and subdued grey tones of steel,brick and render are offset by beautiful Accoya timber which has been used on the oversized garage, bringing a wonderful warmth to the facade. The blend of materials and bold design is repeated throughout, adding a wonderful richness and textural quality to the entire home.
To minimise retaining the home has been built over three levels working with the natural slope of the site, which also accommodates the client’s brief to create a home that provides zoned living spaces for short term and long term occupants that seamlessly transition to the outdoors.
Unique features are abundant throughout the 482m2 residence, including a mezzanine floor in the garage, an internal bridge in the upper floor void that connects to the master suite and a lightwell in the ground floor bathroom that during the day cascades light over a mosaic wall and at night transforms into a portal to the stars above the bath. In the main open plan living space a cleverly designed dividing wall houses the fireplaces whilst concealing an illuminated bar area.
Throughout the property the warmth of natural hardwood timber combines with the clean, cool lines of polished concrete floors, brick and steel detailing to create an industrial ambiance that still feels homely.
Both inside and out, the finish is exemplary, using the highest-quality materials,including Masterwall cladding, polished Concrete floors and solid Blackbutt stair treads to the staircase. From the impressive entrance to the rear covered alfresco area, this is a home for living and entertaining in comfort and luxury.
