CLOCKWISE FROM FAR LEFT
The living, dining and kitchen flow
seamlessly; the view from the main suite’s
terrace, looking east; living and dining areas
open to the terrace overlooking the river;
the street elevation showcases a number
of materials used.
The design of this abode reflects its location,
just one house back from the Swan River.
Panoramic views are absorbed through
glazing across the home’s northern aspect,
while large balconies provide a place to sit
and watch the river scene.
In line with the clients’ brief, the design
incorporates energy-saving features – such as an
underground water tank, solar PV panels, natural
ventilation, access to winter sun and appropriate
shading for summer.
Rooms have been organised to suit the owners’
lifestyle, with guest rooms provided on the ground
floor and private quarters on the upper levels.
A sense of the outdoors is created through
landscape elements that filter through the home,
including a tranquil pond and waterfall that
can be viewed from all levels.
Finished in white off-form concrete,
complemented by clear glass balustrades, the
home has a sleek contemporary look that sets it
apart on the streetscape.
