A WELCOME RETREAT.
Designed by Architect Brendon Gordon and built by Calley Homes this project showcases craftsmanship and environmental solutions.
DESIGN & BUILD
Clad in Colorsteel iron cladding and a combination of vertical and horizontal cedar, this home features two sections: the ground floor and the upper level. The cladding choice elevates the design creating contrasts between the two sections which sit at opposite angles to each other.
Cedar is utilised both internally and externally. The soffits are cedar clad as are feature walls throughout the home including the staircase between levels. Negative detailing throughout the interiors in place of skirting boards continue on this theme.
The home is built for lifestyle and entertaining. The home’s layout sees internal spaces connect to external and this is evident in the open plan kitchen, living and dining which all open onto a choice of three covered outdoor areas. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms serve for the owners and their guests.
Extensive landscaping includes a stunning pool and generous deckings. Built into the harbourside landscape the pool is surrounded by Corten steel cladding, giving a natural rusted appearance.
The home has many environmental considerations
from the earthquake strength rib raft floor to the full solar power system with battery storage and underground storage tanks for collecting the rain water from the roof. The home features a Bosch Hydronic Central Heating system which integrates the heating of the outdoor pool, Architectural suite window joinery with Low E max glass and 140mm wide timber framing to allow for extra insulation.
Automation throughout the home is controlled by a KNX automation system which operates the solar panel system, the central heating, lighting, blinds, pool heating, and the in-home surround audio system.
