Sometimes simplicity simply trumps all else when it comes to design! This beautiful single-family contemporary home in Australia proves precisely this as it turns to the tried and tested ‘cubic form’ to transform a large barren sloping site into the perfect lot for an inviting modern residence.
The mesmerizing and relaxing sights and sounds of the play host to millions of tourists from across the globe each year and nestled in this picturesque landscape is designed by JaK Studio.
This also allowed the new homeowners to showcase their wide collection of artwork and unique décor pieces that they accumulated over the years. Smartly placed windows and skylights further enhanced the relaxed joyful mood indoors while fully addressing privacy concerns.
There is something innately beautiful about churches that have been transformed to serve a different purpose in the ever-changing world. While we have seen some being altered into breathtaking bookstores and libraries most often old churches find a new lease on life as unique and dramatic contemporary homes.
The presence of this ply clad addition saves space helps in better organization of the rest of the house and also delineates the kids’ playroom from the living area without the use of additional walls.
Celebrating old structures and discarded buildings by turning them into elegant modern homes not only pays a tribute to the past but also offers a future that is sustainable and affordable.
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!
