With the interiors and the furnishings strictly adhering to a cool white template the house depends on the beautiful natural cove area to give it its unique character and a dash of color and freshness.
The home has a continuous and flowing color palette that gives it the spacious look while keeping the theme of the house simple. The ample use of wood and brown shades gives it the inviting warmth which every home needs. Cozy modern furniture glazed doors and unassuming wooden surfaces complete the ergonomic and adaptive house. Located in the historical Beaumaris area which has traditionally been renowned for its experimental architecture the in Melbourne is another wonderful example of integrating modern design with sustainable features.
The top floor is pretty much cantilevered and wrapped up in a black zinc cladding and the use of extravagant floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensures that there is a wonderful 270 degree view of the Bay area. The interiors are truly spacious simple in their constitution and completely uncluttered.
