Merging elegant detailing with raw structural elements, this 2019 home defies gravity - weaving a constant balance between light and dark. Phil Redmond (PR + au), together with a team of builders & artisans, has delivered a bold, playful home full of hidden corners and stolen views.
The dark exterior, with its heavy cloak of Flemish brick, belies the lightness within - skylights deliver regular punctuations of illumination, from both sun and moon, while glimpses of greenery and dappled light provide diversity.
The 288m2 floorplan is arranged along a long central spine - its core the foundation from which all other rooms radiate. Flipping the traditional script, downstairs spaces are utilitarian and monastic, while the upper floor houses livelier entertaining spaces, along with the sumptuous master suite. This dichotomy is further enhanced by the use of Carrara marble and American Oak flooring, despite their shared herringbone pattern they provide clear distinction; the lightness of the upper zone contrasting with the weightier materials downstairs.
The inner-city home's generous 627m2 grounds pale in comparison to the verdant heart of Hagley Park which lies immediately opposite, although they still deliver plenty of punch with double garaging and landscaped courtyards.
And, with the land zoned RCC, there exists potential to further develop the vacant land at the rear of the property.
From the large, gridded window in the upstairs gable end, the Avon River wends its path to the ocean whilst willows sway, casting a meditative spell on occupants.
The dazzling design and craftsman-like construction have already earned the home several accolades in national architecture and design awards. Now, having painstakingly brought this dream to life, our client is moving on to an even bigger project; passing the Park Terrace baton to lucky new owners.
