Set on a row of period homes, what lies behind an understated exterior is a showpiece of radically innovative design – the result of a close collaboration between the homeowners and Icon Architects.
Enter through an enclosed driveway, which opens out onto the south-west facing courtyard garden. The embodiment of an urban oasis, concrete flooring and brick walls afford a textured backdrop for climbing jasmine and wisteria. Glass balustrades frame a void down to a courtyard below, and work to delineate a seating area from a barbecue and alfresco dining area.
Boundaries between the indoors and out are blurred; reams of daylight flood through floor-to-ceiling sliding windows into the social heart of the home. A prodigious, cutting-edge industrial palette is softened by all the welcoming character of a family living space. The corrugated metal ceiling and skylights offer a sweeping dynamicity throughout the room. Striking displays of light and shadow play out across the pale walls and floors, courtesy of cellular beams. Linear track lighting cast a warm glow when nights draw in, whilst the eye is drawn to an ambient suspended fireplace.
Down steps, the kitchen is an environment envisaged for culinary creativity. Smooth whitewashed surfaces and cabinets finished with matte black handles frame integrated appliances. A dining zone features a fitted teal bench and pendant lighting, with a cosy television area sitting adjacent. At the back of the room, find a separate utility room and wine storage.
A verdant indoor planter – complete with vibrant snake plants, palm leaves and succulents – frames the top of the staircase. Downstairs, the internal courtyard filters light into three bedrooms and a study; each space is uplifting and soothing. In the principle bedroom suite, hushed colours lend attention to the velvet, indigo-toned floating bed. A carpeted dressing area leads to the ensuite bathroom, featuring a dual vanity, oversized walk-in shower and greyscale marble tiling. Two further bedrooms are complete with pared-back tones and plenty of storage, served by a family bathroom and shower room respectively. Up on the ground floor, a skylit one-bedroom annexe is complete with an ensuite shower and plant room – imagined for guests or peaceful home working.
Bold design and expertly-considered materials create a compelling canvas for modern family dwelling.
