The old midcentury Hollywood style we’ve all come to know and love is actually a combination of many décor movements including neoclassical and art deco. In many ways it was a style marked by other styles. Much like the homes of the Ancient Greek and Roman royalty every piece of décor is beautiful detailed and could function as a work of art all on its own.
Overlooking the port Philip Bay area the home designed by Maddison Architects is an amalgamation of two distinct structures into one. The idea is to bring together a south and a north facing facade with simple and elegant design. While this gives the house a unique look it also helps in terms of energy management and ventilation a great deal.
The top floor is where the living quarters and the master bedroom are housed and its cantilevered presence offers the owners both unique views along with giving the home a distinct character. The stylish pool in the back surrounded by a stone deck area and the spacious rooftop provide great opportunities for some fun evening parties while ergonomic interiors along with cozy furnishings complete this Brazilian beauty!
The generous use of glass has been attributed to the lush green surroundings and how the clients asked for a design that offers gorgeous views of this natural terrain. The most interesting and appealing aspect of the home though is the stunning spiral staircase at the heart of the structure which just seems to enrich the look of the interiors several fold along with the dazzling chandeliers.
It is pretty evident that most contemporary home owners are opting for a home office area that allows them to not just work from home but also allows them to bring home work on a few days of their choice. The arrangement is becoming more and more popular as ergonomic and stylish home office areas are now more common than ever before.
