The distinctive design is reflective of the corner block position and the need for the prevailing views. A steel portal frame allowed the build to progress quickly once the excavations and slab was prepared. An important component was the large commercial windows and connection details were vital along with the fixings of the striking Corten cladding. Given the feature Porte Cochere, Entry Bridge, main deck and horizon pool, the external design was to feature exceptional timber work, stone and other natural materials to blend into the landscape. Internally, the first amongst many eye grabbing features is the polished concrete floor. This then moves through to magnificent open kitchen with its sleek design utilising space and allowing for functionality. Floor to ceiling double glazed windows along with clerestory highlight glazing accentuates the openness via outstanding natural light. Appointments to ensuite, bathrooms and powder rooms mean that expansive bedrooms are serviced to the highest quality. The integration of all these features means that from all areas of the home, the exceptional outdoor locales are experienced on every level

Project of the Month: August 2015

This stunning ceiling is a clear, smooth cedar with a natural finish. That finish was chosen to highlight the natural color variation in the cedar. The ceiling was framed to allow for the change in directions of the ceiling finish. The center was vaulted for the placement of an impressive chandelier and some indirect lighting. The vaulted area is finished with decorative tin.
