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.
The stand out structure of the entire design is the large metal wall made out of painted aluminum that not only adds to the beauty and the balance of the home but also provides privacy by visually shielding the interiors from the wanderers’ eyes outside. The tasteful glazed flooring and the pool offer perfectly reflective surfaces and give the home a more spacious feel.
The entire upper floor is laced in lavishness and is sensibly adorned with floor to ceiling glass windows so as to disturb the existing privacy. Tables that have been carved out of stone and décor that is both refreshing and yet easy on the eyes with neutral shades complete the interiors.
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 use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensures that there is ample ventilation while a green backyard is visually linked with the rest of the home as well. With sleek and well defined lines making up the design smart décor and trendy use of color this elegant home brings together the best of two different worlds with unassuming sophistication.
