The owners of this Cottesloe property requested
a spacious, functional and comfortable home for
themselves, their two teenage daughters and their
young son. The design had to incorporate private
spaces for each family member, as well as varied
entertaining spaces. Parking for four cars and a lap
pool and spa were also on the brief.
A focus on zoning to create separate living
spaces drove the design concept and as a result,
the home exudes a high level of privacy and
comfort combined with function and practicality.
The sloping nature of the block initially presented
Yael Kurlansky and her team with some challenges.
However, by elongating, terracing and manipulating
the house into the five-metre slope, they allowed the
home to capture the northern sun while creating
a journey of interesting indoor and outdoor spaces.
Advantage was also taken of the property’s
rear access – Yael created a private entry point for
the parents that provided them with easy access
to their own decadent wing. It also leads to the
indulgent, highly detailed kitchen, which is truly
the heart of this home.
There is a seamless flow between the
living and dining areas as they unfold into
each other and spill outside – this is where
lifestyle and function come together.
The highest quality finishes and fittings
create a feeling of grandeur in this family home.
A mixture of polished plaster, glass and an array
of textured materials and fabrics add interest
and create comfort. These elements are evident
throughout the entire home, where a perfectly
balanced use of space and function prevail.
Structured rooflines give the home definition
and distinction, while the creative use of colour
reinforces its confident architecture.
Colour and texture flow seamlessly from the
exterior, through the interior to create a spacious,
functional and comfortable home that meets and
exceeds the brief.
The home includes private spaces
for each family member and luxurious
finishes to create a sense of grandeur.
A FOCUS ON ZONING TO CREATE SEPARATE
LIVING SPACES DROVE THE DESIGN CONCEPT
AND AS A RESULT, THE HOME EXUDES A HIGH
LEVEL OF PRIVACY AND COMFORT COMBINED
WITH FUNCTION AND PRACTICALITY.
