Perfect Perforations.

This City Beach residence is the result of a long-winded and very collaborative approach with our clients. Featuring two storeys and a basement level wine cellar and store cut into the existing site, we deliberately located the house to minimise earthworks.

Architecturally, the home blends modernist-era influences with a refined pallete to best sympathise with its surroundings. Featuring a white perforated-steel cladding, the façade is punctured by carefully considered windows and planter beds, forming a framework for climbing plants. At night, the perforations allow light to penetrate through, transforming the residence into a warm, glowing lantern.

The upper-level appears to float over a generous courtyard which forms the entry. The house’s configuration maximises light and views over the pool-deck and reserve directly adjacent. The upper level features an open-plan, kitchen, living and dining area which spills seamlessly out to the cabana; perfect for entertaining.

Internally, stone and natural timbers exude luxury and compliment the decorative, and yet refined, exterior.
