"A beautiful home is the result of considering the environment and the project as one, along with the interface between interior design and architecture."
Perched like a rocky outcrop above the valley this house by Vitale Design with views forever through its walls of glass feels like it should be there, that it is part of the landscape. Monumental and cave like yet open to the surrounding bush with the slide of a wall panel or window.
It sits solidly on the site like the sandstone outcrops which are a feature of the Sydney landscape. This substantial family home at Palm Beach by Bentley Design is evocative of beach side living but not in the sense of driftwood and sea foam, more stone against the wind and spray. Beautiful position, beautiful home to suit.
Close your eyes. That's right. Close your eyes. Imagine a barn, a big, grey barn with huge doors that silde open to reveal views of lush green woods. Imagine the space divided into rooms intimate or vast. Now furnish those rooms with simple pieces, simple, beautiful, tactile things. Think of aged timbers and white wash, stone and linens, old but new. Open your eyes. Did your dream barn look like this one? Mine did. Contemporary Barn by D. Stanley Dixon Architect.
