Simple yet sumptuous

With strong, simple stone and burnt wood cladding, a stepped layout and stand-out design moments, this home combines functionality with flair

Designed by Fletcher Hawkins, R Architecture

From the architect:

The concept for this design was to provide an elegant home that was flexible and would provide multiple living spaces, enabling residents to have their individual as well as shared zones. 

In responding to the steep slope of the site, the house cascades down the slope from street level, breaking up the ground floor spaces into three levels which creates zones within the floor plan and more interesting spaces. 

A central entry with double height ceilings and feature stair splits the house, creating separation and privacy between the living and sleeping spaces. 

The stepping of the site also allows for the soaring 4m high ceiling in the main living space

The home embraces the needs expected for a family while also allowing the parents to confidently maintain their own privacy. 

The flexibility of spaces makes the house incredibly durable in all aspects of life, giving the inhabitants great opportunities to use their home as they see fit.

A simple and elegant palette of stone and dark stained timber batten cladding provides a sense of luxury to the front facade. 

That is balanced by metal accents and cascading plants and complemented by polished concrete render and black panellised cladding, resulting in a modern and sophisticated exterior finishes palette.
