Woollahra House by Tzannes Associates
And while on the subject of the national peculiarities of the architectural design and the contemporary trends in home arrangement – the Australians are the masters of constructing vast appearing homes in small and dense lots, with additional lush garden premises that define the character of each home.
This project of Tzannes Associates uses the vast wall openings (windows and sliding doors) not only as sustainable ventilation but also as a life picture of a beautiful landscape that brings color and charm into the rooms. This unobstructed float between inner premises and garden is mediated by gorgeous wooden cladding and stone mosaics. The black framing of the pure white spaces in the interior is further accentuated by elegant black details and elements (like the designer’s lamps that adorn each space or the gray tile line that goes throughout the living premise framing the ceiling).
The warm presence of wooden cladding, furnishing, and interior details are stylish and carries the spirit of natural sunny light. The furnishing and the overall interior decor design is quite minimalistic – with clear lines, elegant presence and functional edge. The designers made an extra effort to ensure the sustainability of the home –apart from the natural ventilation system mediated by controlled louvers, LED lighting, photovoltaic cells and rainwater retention are also included in the house project.
