Designed by Pinheiro Martinez Arquitetura the home features a distinct nautical tinge in every room of the house as the décor and accessories add this touch of beach-inspired beauty.

Functionality and comfort are the two key aspects that defined the transformation with form taking a backseat at times. The wooden deck outside visually becomes a part of the living room and kitchen and adds textural contrast along with a stone fireplace that sits next to the glossy all-white contemporary kitchen. A household that is pragmatic and cozy to its core!
The traditional street façade of the double-fronted home was kept intact and a two-story extension was added to the rear connecting the existing garden with the interior in a seamless fashion.
But one look at the spectacular residence and you will realize that whatever superlatives you use do not really do justice to its sheer ingenuity and grandeur. Nestled amidst the lovely canopy Flagstaff Hill the cantilevered home seems like a luxury retreat that jumped out of a sci-fi movie.
On the inside the living room also adds to this natural vibe with a lush green living wall and water feature that steal the spotlight. A blend of deliberately contrasting volumes textures and finishes adds to this look of ‘curated chaos’ that every level of the house exudes.
A tranquil and comfy getaway that allows you to spend lazy summer evenings on the sand as you take in the sun and the surf does sound like an inviting proposition. Located in Australia is a charming residence that definitely ushers in that beachy vibe with its classic color scheme of white and blue and an airy refreshing interior.
