A giant hanging chandelier a large faux fur rug a stylized bronze lion perched upon a table and an ornate chaise lounge perfectly arranged for a graceful fainting scene – all of these items would look out of place alone. However together they create the sort of dramatic effect cultivated best by old Hollywood.
The idea was to design a sustainable and spacious structure which is made out of a single pallet of material. The wide open living and dining spaces along with the kitchen area the bathrooms laundry a couple of private bedrooms and even a bunkroom complete the quarters.
But do not be distracted by the sober skies as this stunning modern structure nestled on the Pacific Coast of California can is simply spectacular in ways more than one. The most distinct aspect of the home is the grand use of stone on the outside that gives it its very unique and inimitable look.
The use of glass for this purpose has several benefits as it is easy to use retractable glass walls when compared to other materials thanks to their lighter weight but more importantly it only keeps the noise out while still giving visual access.
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.
