Modern lifestyle with many exciting activities on schedule provoked general concept idea to create a building with long durability span and as low maintenance needs as possible. That approach determined the selection of exposed concrete as the primary material and an absolute minimum of additional finishes applied.
The two storey building has a couple of spacious mezzanines with access from main bedrooms, effectively making three storeys (660 sq.m of total floor area).
Walking through the front door is a surprise in itself when you find yourself in a comprehensive main open living area with 5m high double pitch ceiling. This impressive space is complemented by adjoining outdoor patio containing the private pool, spa and large fire pit.
