The open plan living area is filled with a bright yellow couch that provides an otherwise neutral space with plenty of color while Darth Vader masks throw pillows and other action figures from the Star Wars universe instantly reveal the theme of the room. The two central pieces of this dramatic home grace the dining space that sits next to the living area with a TIE Fighter-inspired dining table and the bright red Darth Maul double-bladed lightsaber.
The façade of the house is truly unique with a smart brick wall seamlessly blending in with its more contemporary surroundings. The thick brick wall was as much a functional addition as it was aesthetic with its presence keeping out harsh afternoon sunlight and excessive heat during those really hot summer days.
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.
With an open living area that also houses the kitchen and dining space becoming the social zone and heart of the house one feels that the interior is a lot more spacious than it really is. Pops of green and orange enliven the kitchen bedroom and bathroom while furniture crafted from leftover structural timber and concrete gives the home a planet-friendly twist. A large wooden and concrete deck outside complete a home that is inviting practical and peaceful.
Understated modern décor and large open areas that flow into one another ensure that the kids have plenty of space to explore and enjoy in an unhindered fashion. Sliding glass doors and large windows bring in the outdoors beautifully even as large sheer curtains filter out harsh sunlight on hot summer days. Efficient and responsive to the ever-changing needs of the young family there is plenty to like about this smart Aussie home!
This fabulous fusion of different spaces is what gives the home its unique form and distinctive style even while clearly defining each area. A seamless blend of locally sourced wood with concrete and steels ensures that there is ample textural contrast within the home and large windows and glass doors bring in plenty of natural freshness.
The stunning was crafted with great care by White Interior Design and every detail here pays tribute to the Star Wars universe. It goes without saying that the young owners of this apartment are more than in love with the epic but to translate it into a gorgeous home that is still inviting exciting and unique definitely takes some doing.
