With a neutral color scheme and fabulous décor that adds color and pattern there is a great balance here between native decorative elements and clean contemporary design. Seemingly both dramatic and understated it is the hardwood battens that give the top level of the house its distinct identity regulate ventilation and provide an additional layer of privacy.
Steel-gray granite white stucco timber slats and wooden battens shape the distinct façade of this Indian home along with the generous use of glass. Completely opening up to the greenery that surrounds it the overall form of the house mimics that of a multilevel gallery.
A smart fireplace acts as a divider between the dining area and the living space with the modern industrial home office finding space on the same level. Exposed concrete walls a gallery-style display of artwork and comfy décor turn this steely and masculine home office into a comforting and posh hangout. Throw in striking pendant lights and functional recessed lights and you have a home that is both relaxing and ravishing!
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.
The smart insertion connects the main house with the two new bedrooms at the rear of the lot and turns a classic Melbourne residence with brick façade into a unique and exquisite contemporary dwelling. Designed by Steffen Welsch Architects the rejuvenated home hosts a family of five thanks to the improved and extended living area.
Transforming the seemingly boring house into a contemporary masterpiece that enthralls with unabated views of the majestic Lake Austin and the rolling hills that surround it its revamped design leaves you simply awestruck.
Despite its ultra-modern appeal there is no lack of contrast both in terms of geometry and texture inside the home with stylish wooden panels in the dining room and the home office bringing the walls and the ceiling alive.
