This project differed though. Where their previous house was tailored more for their life as a professional couple, this new home was to suit their growing family, with the design offering more flexibility and change in the use of spaces for the years ahead.
The homeowners wanted their new abode to be a showstopper, with a unique and contemporary facade – one that maintained privacy from the street, yet boasted a striking, clean, and modernist street appeal.
Beautiful internal and external curved walls are central in the building design by Koda Design. But maintaining a straight horizontal line with the curved exterior walls posed a significant challenge.
Koda Design worked through this issue in the design phase, while builders, Lindon Homes and the manufacturers handled the precise structural testing of the curvature of material, including breakpoints and minimum radius, working closely with the site carpenters throughout the build and installation to ensure a spectacular outcome.
Although quite subtle, the placement and positioning of the curves were well thought out by Koda Design to give maximum impact, from the front façade and internal entrance at the foyer, through to the upstairs study.
The use of INNOWOOD Cladding enhances the look and feel of the curvaceous surface design, adding much needed warmth.
An overall white palette is offset by the warm tones of the timber and stone, used in a largely unbroken sense throughout the open-plan home, while the polished concrete floors anchor the light-filled living spaces.
The kitchen makes a bold style statement as the heart of the modern family home, complete with Gaggenau kitchen appliances, New York marble benchtops, and cabinetry in Dark Brown Cape Elm laminate with a verticle grain from Nikpol.
With large open spaces seamlessly spilling into other areas of the multi-storey home, Koda Design has chosen to use a state-of-the-art Mono Stringer staircase to connect the living and bedroom zones, giving maximum visual impact while still adhering to the minimal aesthetic required of the interior design.
The home’s alfresco areas are another stunning show of scale and style, with a cantilevered roof soaring over the outdoor entertainment spaces, and textural stone cladding offset by stark white stucco fencing.
Fully tiled in a sparkling aquamarine shade, the jewel-like swimming pool further enhances the backyard and the family’s lifestyle.
The project took 11 months from the initial design stage by Koda Design, to the construction by Lindon Homes though to completion – and the result is nothing short of sensational, the quality of workmanship utterly impressive.
It’s a modern family home in every sense. And that street appeal the homeowners asked for? Fair to say, this home has it in spades.
