Once you step inside this elegant home the image of the dark stained cedar exterior is quickly replaced by a breezy living space clad in neutral hues and an open living area that is filled with ample natural light.
Wood steel concrete and glass shape both the exterior and the interior of the house with the bay windows making a big difference to its overall form. With concrete and custom wooden shelves also making a big impact in the kitchen there is plenty of contrast to be found all around – both in terms of style and texture!
It is the ground floor that contains the living space dining area kitchen master suite and additional bedrooms while the top level houses the second master suite along with the open study and the sunroom. Complete with a sauna massage room home library and a refreshing pool and a vibrant garden the Gallery House epitomizes contemporary grandeur at its functional best!
A roughcast concrete river wall stands between the house and the river’s edge and sets clear boundaries while the silhouette of the house and the ‘raw’ nature of the elements used in construction draw from local architecture and its historic industrial past.
Nothing transforms an interior completely like the right lighting. It could be a flood of natural light on some occasions and a carefully planned and executed combination of recessed and pendant lighting on others.
