The owners of this site in Sydney’s North West wanted to create a home that was consistent with the architectural character of the area whilst adding aesthetic elements that would stand it apart from neighbouring homes. Working closely with the architect, a unique contemporary design was developed for a home over nine separate floor levels that worked with the natural slope of the site and ensured that the home sat gracefully in the streetscape.
On the front façade of the home Alpine stone cladding and Blackbutt timber screening have been used to add texture and warmth to the smooth rendered walls. A mature native Narrowleaf Bottle Tree was added to the landscaping to provide a connection with the home and the natural environment.
At the centre of the home is one of the homes unique design elements, a circular sunken lounge. Stone cladding on the internal wall, adds a cohesiveness between the external and interior finishes.
Replicating the curves of the lounge, a stunning curved wall of floor to ceiling glass panels showcases the sparkling curved pool on the opposite side and floods the home with natural light.
A number of challenges needed to be overcome due to the proximity of the pool to the interior living areas however these were skilfully resolved thanks to expert planning and attention to detail during the construction period.This has resulted in a stunning symmetry between the curved design elements and make the pool a focal point both inside and outside the home.
The home has been built with considerable thought to energy efficiency. The design includes a 10,000 litre water tank and photo voltaic solar power system. Natural light has again been emphasized in the light and bright kitchen where the soaring ceilings have been fitted with skylights.
Glass doors open out from the living area to the stunning landscaped gardens and again from the interior dining area to the well-appointed alfresco area. The cohesiveness of the home and the exterior spaces and quality of finish that can be seen throughout is a testament to award winning Sydney Custom Home builder, Gremmo Homes who managed all aspects of the construction.
