The generous family residence by Graeme Alexander Homes takes in an idyllic setting and feels private at the same time. A mix of upper decks was used to provide casual protected outdoor living - the front view deck has sea views, shile the rear sun deck overlooks a sheltered swimming pool area. Use of natural materials and myriad vistas out to the ocean create a feeling of living amongst nature.

Just as every building site is different, so every new home or renovation project needs to be customised.

Graeme Alexander Homes specialisesin the design and build of quality custom homes that offer a distinctive point of difference. But every project has one thing in common, says owner Graeme Alexander they all celebrate clients' lifestyles.

"Every project also reflects a close attention to detail and innovation," he says. "Many of our sites are tricky, and require specific design solutions to ensure views, indoor space and outdoor living areas are maximised."

The property shown above was designed for a couple nearing retirement. While the triangular-shaped site had broad views, there were also restrictions.

The orientation of this existing house was changed to optimise views, sun and sheltered outdoor living spaces. Graeme Alexander Homes also made extensive changes to the interior

In response, Graeme Alexander Homes dug the house into the site to reduce bulk and to provide easy access.

"The modern, four-bedroom home has floor-to-ceiling glass and refined interiors," says Alexander. "Raising the ceiling over the central core creates a grand feel. The house is set up for an easy lifestyle, with spacious interiors and a good indoor-outdoor flow. There is also an elevator."

The house shown above right was a major renovation. Graeme Alexander Homes changed the indoor-outdoor flow from the southeast, adding a new pool and outdoor area facing northwest. This takes advantage of the views and sun, but avoids prevailing winds.

There is also a new entertainer's kitchen and lower-level living room. An upstairs rumpus room and deck, guest bedroom and bathroom were added and the master bedroom was given an ensuite and walk-in wardrobes.

The house is transparent on the lower level so views can be enjoyed right through the interior, from the sheltered pool area to the panoramic ocean views. The lower level contains the entry and a living space, bar and kitchenette that opens up to a barbecue by the pool. A guest bedroom with ensuite, spare family bedrooms , a study and large two car garage designed to double as a rumpus room or party area also features

Spacious living areas are also a feature of the new house shown at right, which features expansive glazing, including butted glass on one corner.
