Classic villa exterior meets contemporary interior in this large family home

The living spaces are airy and light filled in this new build. While an historic home might have had the high ceilings, it would have lacked the large wall openings and open layout that let occupants make the most of the natural light. Sliders and French doors open two sides of the room to the outdoors. Together with the interior woodwork detail, the filigree on the verandah forms part of the indoor aesthetic.
