A cleverly placed Japanese maple tree graces the indoor courtyard and completes a relaxing reading zone that sits indoors. A dark kitchen island and black kitchen shelves with a glossy finish offer lovely visual contrast when combined with the exposed brick wall on one side and glass walls on the other.
The kids’ rooms are no different with custom wall creations that draw inspiration from the Millennium Falcon driver cockpit even as the wardrobes blend in with the overall theme. No matter where you turn it is hard if not impossible to get away from the dominant theme of this fascinating apartment. And while it might not be everyone’s cup of tea it surely transports you into another universe!
One of the cool features of this transformed home is undoubtedly the large and narrow skylight that brings ample natural light into the lower level of the residence even as the top floor holds the master suite along with a private wooden deck. Striking pendant lights and a curated landscape put the final touches on a serene and practical Aussie dwelling.
The lavish home was specifically crafted to meet the demands of a modern family with two kids and it is the lower level that contains the open sunken living area along with other social zones the kitchen and the dining area. But it is the top floor that draws your attention with its 24-meter-long corridor that connects the parents’ wing on the east side of the house with the kids’ wing on the west along with the balconies on both ends and the social zone in between.
A small deck extends the living space outdoors and offers a tranquil retreat that lets the homeowners take in the beautiful hilly landscape and the lush green garden. Responding to the environmental needs of the area and keeping construction time and cost down to a minimum were project priorities.
