Using a daring mix of materials in this impressive modern Melbourne family home in a bayside suburb at first appears to be an almost ‘upside down’ looking monolith sitting proudly within the suburban streetscape.
From one direction this bold, modernistic home with its full height glass windows looks across the tree tops and over the neighbouring park, while the rest of the house centres around the pool that runs the length of the building. A series of ‘boxes upon boxes’, you get the sense that this bold, light filled home would not look out of place in the Hollywood Hills either.
An oversized marble kitchen bench and matching splash back works with the bank of stainless steel fridges lining the back wall to effectively create a luxe feel to the open plan kitchen and dining area. Here an impressively long, dark dining table is lightened by a line of surrounding pale oak dining chairs and graphic rug beneath, while the grey hued walls provide a complimentary anchor to the overall scheme.
Skyline Sauna by Rogerseller
In the living room, colour has been used to create visual impact by introducing large orange cushions to a broad, neutral coloured sofa, while fully upholstered Kelly armchairs from Jardan in a textured orange fabric add a certifiable punch to the room. The master bedroom too uses a mix of textures and patterns with grass cloth wallpaper in marl grey used as a feature wall behind the bed, blue jewel toned velvets for cushions and glass pendant lighting.
Using a mix of stone, glass and marble throughout the four (yes four) bathrooms, together with free standing Apaiser Sublime bath tubs, under mount sinks and sculptural tapware all by
Rogerseller successfully heightens the sense of sanctuary style bathing for every family member. As for the Skyline Sauna – well what can we say. That’s just the icing on the cake.
