It is clear from your very first look, this home is superior in design and construction.
Located in the iconic, redeveloped Perry Lakes
Athletics stadium complex, this east-facing home’s
front elevation commands attention with its
intelligent use of timber, rammed-earth walls and
rendered brickwork. Perched on a 375sqm block, it’s
built up off the street level to incorporate a window
to the undercroft games room with wine cellar.
The impressive design was made possible
due to the hard work from the team at Daniel
Cassettai Design, and Austurban Homes, who
constructed the home.
When Daniel Cassettai met with the clients,
they requested a modern yet edgy family home
with a line-up of quality amenities. These
included a formal separate living area that
could be used as a library; games room and
cellar; a smooth transition between internal
and external spaces; a master bedroom with
a discrete ensuite and dressing room; a guest
bedroom; and two secondary bedrooms with
a combined kids’ retreat/study area.
The ground level consists of a library, kitchen,
living and dining area with full-height (two-
storey) glazing on the southern side of the house
to absorb maximum natural light in the living
areas. Glazed walls are on the north of the home to
exploit exposure to the northern sun in winter.
A double garage, accessed off the laneway,
opens to the utility drop-off zone, where the
client’s children can hang schoolbags and put
away sporting equipment and shoes.
There is also a small bathroom and laundry
in this area.
The upper level is home to the four
bedrooms, including the master suite with
the ensuite and dressing room behind timber-
clad walls, which also doubles as the headboard
for the bed.
The outlook from the upper floor is onto a roof
garden rather than the typical unsightly lower
roofs and associated flashings.
