Building a modern home inside a protected eco-zone is a task that requires both sensitivity towards the natural bio-network that already exists and ingenious architectural solutions that will create a structure that will seem like a natural extension of the landscape.
The grand residence opens up towards the breathtaking Bay of Saint Tropez and offers unabated views of the natural landscape. With design that is essentially simple minimal and contemporary the lavish home showcases a design response to the challenges presented by the exceptional site.
The home is filled with a wide array of contrasting textures that give it a unique personality even as smart sliding partitions separate the living areas from the cleverly organized work zones.
On the outside seems like any other house in the neighborhood with its beautiful brick wall exterior and sweeping wooden deck that offers a relaxing outdoor hangout. It seems like one of those classic homes where tradition trumps modernity.
Apart from the framed glass door that swings open to connect the living area and the backyard a large glass window next to a custom wooden bench in the living room completely opens up the interior to the world outside. This allows the brick wall covered with Boston Ivy to become a part of the living space visually giving the Holden Street House a hint of green goodness!
But the beautiful private residence in Australia takes a different approach to space maximization as it arranges spaces in a series of internal steps to not just create the impression of a breezy cheerful home but also to make the most of the city views on offer. Designed by Tim Stewart Architects this modern home is all about organizational skill and meticulous planning!
Dubbed the the revitalized house now features a cozy and upbeat living and dining area and an ergonomic modern kitchen. A central pod covered in plywood is the real showstopper of the new interior as it houses a bathroom powder room and a pantry that opens up towards the kitchen.
