With a stunning ocean view that could easily overwhelm any interior, Sydney design studio Decus have created a modern home with a luxury beach-meets-city sophistication that more than holds its own. Tamarama House is about drama and retreat, light and dark, private and public, casual and classy ... and seriously sexy bathrooms.
One more from InForm Design, a townhouse, one of three in a row. Contemporary Australian design done well. I think my favourite bit is the hallway/staircase. I love the sense of transition, the attention given to the process of travel between public and private, the light that floods into what could have been a long, dark corridor.
From design to construction, that's the holistic approach of Melbourne-based InForm Design. Their Alphington house consists of two halves. The two-storey ‘Quad’ front section is designed to take advantage of park views from the first floor master bedroom and lounge. Out back is a single storey pavilion containing the living areas separated by a concrete block double-sided fireplace. These spaces spill out to the alfresco entertaining spaces and pool.
The talented folks at Robson Rak Architects took this tired Victorian home in Melbourne and transformed it into a modern masterpiece, while renovating the existing structure and restoring the façade. It must be an incredible feeling to walk under that ornate porch, through the front door, under gorgeous original arches and you are lead into BOOM - a large, open and bright space that is really stunning. All of that reclaimed wood lends a bit of nature to the space and keeps it from being too cold. Respecting the old and embracing the new.
