Designed by David Hartree and constructed
by De Francesch Building Comapny, this
home was actually created for the owners of
the building company, a fact that allowed for
a close working relationship between the architect
and the builders/owners.
With the site at the highest point in the
metropolitan area, the brief was to design an
ultra-modern, multi-level home that exploited
views over the Western Australian Golf Club, and
beyond to the city skyline. A focus on indoor/
outdoor living was important, as was the use of
multiple different building materials.
Specific requirements of the brief included
a large sunken garage to house up to six cars,
plus a ground-floor living and entertaining area
for four teenage children. Extensive terraces and
balconies extend the outdoor spaces.
The first floor houses the kitchen, dining
and living areas, where the parents can enjoy
entertaining, with all levels serviced by a lift.
Key features of the home include frameless
glass stackable doors, Donnybrook stone cladding,
and Alucobond cladding which changes colour
depending on how the sun hits it.
Internally, extensive use of Italian Travertine
flooring throughout, an ultra-modern kitchen,
and extensive use of LED strip lighting create
continuous luxury in every room.
The owners are thrilled with their
contemporary new home that exploits clean
lines to look as if it is ‘floating’.
The aim of De Francesch Building Company is to ensure that any
new client or architect becomes a business partner for life.
