Having lived in a home with spatial limitations for over a decade and a half the owners of this mountainside residence in wanted a smarter more efficient and refreshing modern interior fit for their urban lifestyle.
This effect is even more profound in case of natural light and the in is a perfect example of how creative design can usher in sunlight into the most improbable places! Designed by Ben Callery Architects the rear extension of this narrow brick house in Melbourne relies on a roof that curves towards the sky to fill its living area with sunlight.
The house has been crafted with a unique concrete exterior that is broken up by large glass walls even as the stunning infinity pool on the ceiling and the dark bathroom unit stand in contrast.
The bright color of the fence marvelously accompanies the pastel tone of the house’s exterior and its white trim. It’s obvious this color palette is harmonious and stunning! A big family house overtakes the space appearing almost as majestic as the trees surrounding it. The white picket fence gives it a friendlier feeling and creates a subtle barrier between the passersby and property itself.
The family of seven finds plenty of space in and around the new house even as the pool area becomes the new relaxing ‘social zone’. A lovely garden filled with greenery and light-filled interior spread across two expansive levels complete this modern-classic residence.
Adding to this rich sense of diversity is the large natural rock wall around the courtyard that is laced with tropical plants. A custom irrigation system is used to water this unique living wall that shields the home from prying eyes while providing a tinge of green to the polished residence.
The color white’s biggest blessing is the fact that it makes all the other colors stand out. If you really want the colorfulness of your house to be seen from miles away a white picket fence is a sure-fire way to do so! Since picket fences draw much attention to themselves with their classy look they also draw much attention to your front yard. Make the best of it by creating a blooming yard!
