APPEALATHON, PERRY LAKES
Grandwood by Zorzi collaborated with
suppliers and trades to donate generously to
the Appealathon project, creating this
modernistic home that combines classic
materials with a ‘green theme’.
The unique entry opens to a stone-laid
floor extending through the main living areas
to meet a wall of windows, which opens to
the north, bringing an abundance of natural
light into all levels of the home. A spacious
kitchen and large family room occupy this
open-plan area, where luxurious finishes and
fittings abound. Stone benchtops and white
lacquered cabinetry, along with under-floor
heating beneath the limestone tiles, occupy the
kitchen while an inviting ethanol fireplace flickers
in the living area.
A central set of frameless stacking doors open
out to the alfresco terrace, bringing the outside
into the home.
Upstairs, via the open tread American oak
staircase set above a water feature, the master suite
and ensuite are reached via a bridge-style
walkway that features floor-to-ceiling glass.
Junior suites and an activity room are located
on the opposite side, keeping the parents and
kids’ zones defined.
Thermophotovoltaic cell technology provides
sustainable electricity, and grey-water and rain-
water harvesting systems were implemented to
subtract from the home’s footprint.
A home automation system, with everything
controllable from an iPad or iPhone via an app,
adds a technological component to the cutting-
edge style of this modern, contemporary design.
This Appealathon home won the Australian Spec Home of the
Year 2014 at the HIA National Awards.
