A dazzling interplay of space, transparency and light. Roman Franetic’s dramatic design seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor living. Created around a steel portal frame superstructure, cantilevers throughout give rise to a breathtaking two-storey family room. A glass curtain wall looks out to stunning entertainment areas, while interiors are the ultimate in contemporary luxury on a palatial scale, complete with imported light fittings and eco-friendly features like a 45,000-litre underground water tank.
Nicknamed ‘The Garden House’, Stonehaven’s challenge was to incorporate significant parkland views into the design and a melding of forest into spectacular, environmentally friendly living.
A highly distinctive feature is a tower window, finished in natural clear cedar, creating a major statement by day and a lantern glowing in the night. This eco house sets new standards in energy efficient design and construction.
Celebrating a modern aesthetic, this living masterpiece combines a dramatic street presence with expansive interiors, soaring over 3 levels.
This elegant traditional farmhouse style home extends along the side of the mountain with a central entry, separate formal and informal areas, home theatre, master suite, library and two additional bedrooms. All living areas and bedrooms, apart from the Home Theatre take full advantage of the view. The library includes a second level within a tower structure accessed by an antique spiral staircase.
This stunning contemporary home comprises a four car garage, a downstairs master bedroom, home theatre, kitchen/living/dining, three further bedrooms and an entertaining area upstairs. A covered Alfresco provides seamless integration between the informal areas of the home and the pool/entertaining area outdoors. Additional features include a timber bath, bar and cellar.
Originally two art deco apartments one above the other the finished home been dramatically transformed into a light-filled house with expansive spaces and seamless integration between internal and external areas.
The extension area of kitchen, dining and lounge is flooded with light from the courtyard and pool area. Sliding stacker doors enable the area to be substantially opened onto the courtyard and pool.
There are high levels of external wall, ceiling, internal wall and under floor and inter-floor insulation and a water tank. Passive hydronic heating is used throughout the house. This renovation/addition was designed by Donna Brzezinski of BG Architecture.
