"To avoid views to and from the neighbouring houses, we have concentrated the living areas to the front and back of the home. We also added skylights to provide plenty of natural light."
Andrew Olsen of Jalcon Homes says complete customisation has always set the business apart.
"The company does not have a range of standard plans. Instead, every project is designed to meet the specific site, budget and lifestyle requirements, whether it be a single family home or a group of modern townhouses for a developer.
"For this home, we wanted to provide a rich urban tapestry within a suburban landscape. The numerous features that set the home apart, including the bagged brick exterior, the cedar louvres and dramatic entry void, all help to create a very appealing family home that's well suited to modern living."
Jalcon Homes has its own interior design consultancy, Duo Design, which worked on the interior of the show home. Designer Julie Cooper says she was influenced by the coastal location, choosing to create a Scandinavian-style interior.
"It seemed appropriate to give the home a relaxed, beach feel," she says. "So the interior is very light and airy. The floors, in Oak Polar White, have a washed, beachy look, and furnishings also feature pale timber. However, we warmed the interior with Laminex Designed Timber Veneer Allure Ash cabinetry. And the sculptural balustrading features Tasmanian oak stained in the colour Kauri."
