Strong masculine overtones of concrete, steel, glass and deep refined hues were our clients brief for his ‘mancave’ home.
Occupying a tight urban site footprint this compact yet generously spacious home delivers a sense of urbane quality and studious design with considered construction detailing.
A central concrete pre-cast panel dissects and anchors the building while black stained dressed cedar boards maintain a sympathetic monochromatic colour scheme.
Floating steel & timber stairs are a stand-out feature of this home. The dark stained oak stair treads and steel mono stringer look like a work of art. LED strip lighting fitted to the bottom of each stair tread makes the stair glow.
The Kitchen is a hub for entertaining with a luxe bar area storing fine wines and spirits. A spacious layout including an in-bench cooktop allows the space to be utilised by multiple people at one time.
This innovative design presents an elegant intimate aesthetic with dark characteristics prevalent throughout the home. Much emphasis has been placed on consistency of scale, balance and proportion and finished with fine detailing.
