The bunker is not the only upgrade that the Brighton Residence acquired with a new outdoor living area being added next to the living space inside. Extending into the backyard and pool area the new extension houses a portable lounge TV fireplace and even barbecue zone. A timber landing connects the spa and lap pool with the rest of the setting and the entire backyard seems like a world in itself – an ideal retreat for a stylish staycation!
Bringing contemporary comfort to a land that still seems untouched by modern razzmatazz the gorgeous cabin’s new interior is filled with a flood of natural light along with energizing pops of red.
It is both the searing heat of and durability of composite timber that encouraged the architects to use it while shaping both the timber screening and the generous outdoor decks. It is the deck that connects with both the living area on the first level and the bedrooms on the second level and usher in the outdoors.
Designed by ArchiBlox the natural slope of the lot coupled with a series of gum trees and lush green landscape defined the overall form of the new residence and its cantilevered living form.
A modern treehouse doesn’t necessarily have to be lifted from the ground to capture the magic of a house situated among the trees. The industrial presence of this treehouse really stands out against the natural backdrop. It’s available to rent on Airbnb and should cost some $250 per night. Sleeps 2.
One can instantly notice how the original structure was composed of a variety of materials that include wood stone and corrugated iron and tile. Giving another layer of textural intrigue to this confluence of contrasting materials is glass!
Modular seating coupled with comfy contemporary décor defines this area with a kitchen in black and yellow next to it. The top level holds the master bedroom along with an additional hall home office and other private spaces.
