The lower level of the house contains the double-height living area along with a kitchen and dining space that showcases vibrant yellow and orange accents. The top floor houses five bedrooms with each having their own color scheme along with bathrooms and family areas.
The result: the dingy dark interior was transformed into a bright and beautiful setting. As is the norm these days the home has a new rear extension that flows into the backyard as the Nest Architects completely revamped the ambiance of this small family residence.
This is a home design trend that is on the up and up with most homeowners wanting an extension that acts as a transition zone between the existing main structure and the open courtyard or patio. Crafted by Schulberg Demkiw Architects the transformed Aussie residence relies on a sense of openness and interlinked spaces to fashion the perfect family home.
Located in Queensland and overlooking the ocean it is the view on offer along with building guidelines and environmental concerns that defined its overall silhouette. Its Jetsons-like design gives the gorgeous living room a 180-degree view of the ocean and distant mountains and turns it into an amazing party zone for the entire family.
Along with various shades of blue it is the presence of gray in the living room and the dining area that gives the home its distinctly contemporary flavor and helps it move away from the typical beach house ambiance.
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.
The exterior of the home is clad in a wonderful blend of stone wood concrete and glass while the pool and garden give it a relaxing natural vibe. This seamless alchemy of contrasting textures gives the Garden House its trademark rustic modern look.
