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.
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.
The house has been mainly divided into two segments with the upper level accommodating two serene pools an ergonomic kitchen area intoxicating wine vault spacious dining room an open lounge lovely home office area along with the main master bedroom and the bath areas.
The structure of the house itself is one of a elevated and cantilevered cube that sits safely on a few pillars. The lovely and flowing use of wood along with elegantly extravagant glass surfaces and floor to ceiling glass windows has meant that there is both a natural and yet fashionable appeal that comes with the home.
