The design leverages natural light and shade to achieve optimal thermal performance. Large eaves shade windows during summer to minimize cooling requirements, while the zoned reverse-cycle ducted air conditioning system is equipped with temperature sensors on both floors for maximum efficiency. Internal and external insulation batts, along with the carefully selected construction materials, enhance the overall thermal performance of the home.

The entry opens to reveal cantilevered stairs emerging from a raw concrete blade wall, an innovative design feature that spans the entire home. A three-meter-high sliding passage door with a concealed top track creates a seamless divide between the entry and the main living area.

The kitchen boasts high-quality workmanship and innovation, harmoniously integrating with the home’s overall aesthetic.

The open plan dining and living areas are spacious, stylish, and unique, reflecting a perfect balance of innovative features and superior workmanship. Large north-facing windows welcome the winter sun and contribute to natural warming.

The upper level features the master bedroom with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. The feature bricks extend from the exterior through the matte black commercial windows to form the majority of the internal wall, demonstrating a seamless relationship between indoor and outdoor spaces.

The outdoor kitchen and dining area, complemented by minimalist landscaping, aligns with the home’s architectural elegance. The outdoor shower adds a refreshing touch to the setup.

The pool area is a mesmerizing spectacle at night, with a glass-sided spa and lit feature screens providing a luxurious retreat.
