A blend of open and private spaces coupled with a combination of materials and textures the in Australia is all about combining contrasts. Nestled on a lot that shares its boundaries with nearly a dozen other homes this stylish Aussie residence was designed by Jackson Clements Burrows to offer a balance between complete privacy and smart outdoor living spaces depending on the time of the day and the purpose of the room.
A series of gardens courtyards and rooms create the lower level of the house that contains the living spaces with the top floor holding the bedrooms. It is white stained cladding that gives the house a unique façade and also filters in sunlight without completely opening up the home.
Use of large dark windows with dark metallic frame gives the Aussie residence a subtle industrial vibe; an idea that is enhanced by the occasional presence of the exposed brick wall. But still the interior feels strictly contemporary (with a fun twist) and the kitchen and dining space on the lower level continue this theme.
A narrow entryway leads into the main home where nothing feels conventional! A sunken living area with home bar is surrounded by walls of books that extend all the way up to the ceiling. These floor-to-ceiling bookshelves give the home color personality and also showcase the homeowner’s love for books without confining it to just a single study room.
Color scheme inside the beach house is neutral with pops of yellow and green ushering in color while a cool fireplace and a contemporary staircase with glass railing connects the two levels of the relaxing home. A simple deck and patio complete this contemporary beach house which charms you with its exceptional form.
