The ground level of the home is reserved for dining in with family and friends while the new second storey addition contains the bedrooms and a rumpus retreat. The kitchen, dining and living room open up to the pool through full-height black glazing that punctuates the creamy bagged brick exterior. These windows act as a border around the perimeter of the home, providing tailored views of the manicured garden and pool and connecting the interiors to the outdoors wherever possible.
Away from the primary open plan living area, the separate living room exudes the same honest modern Australian charm as the rest of the home. An upholstered navy blue window seat conceals storage, with a discreet study accessible through a sliding door.
While natural light pours through the ground floor, skylights in the upstairs addition create interesting light and shadow effects throughout the day. Kensington carpet from Halycon Lake in the bedrooms and rumpus provides cosiness underfoot and differentiate the private areas from the formal rooms downstairs. Outdoors, the undercover entertaining zone provides ample seating poolside, accompanied by an integrated barbecue clad in Neolith Beton by CDK Stone.
A close collaboration between Studio Griffiths and Pleysier Perkins, CBA Residence is a lesson in understated elegance through a consistent colour palette and thoughtful zoning. By prioritising indoor-outdoor living, the home embraces functional family living at its finest.
