This soft contemporary home in California strikes that essential poise between form and functionality. While modern in both design and outlook the home is not uber-futuristic and does not use excessively sleek design both on the inside and on the outside.
There is a fine balance between getting that perfect modern home which is both contemporary in design and comfortable to live in and one that is a bit too slick and modern and requires high maintenance. In case of small families and couples with kids it is as important to have a home that is practical and offers all the facilities that you need as it is to have one that suits your taste and appeals to your sense of aesthetics.
This beautiful 2-story residence in inner city Brisbane Australia is somewhat classic but still brings a dramatic modern twist. Shaun Lockyer Architects did a very good job designing this project as an addition to a mass-produced suburban type of house and developing it with originality.
The ground floor houses a spectacular library the dining room an inside swimming pool with fully glazed walls that envelope the outside landscape like photographs and the basement houses a cinematography room. According to the architects “the footprint of the building uses a superimposed 7×7 meter skewed grid to support the program in a composition similar to a musical score.
The living and dining spaces were remodeled with the modern approach of blending the experience of indoor and outdoor space. Views of the outside accompany pretty much every step throughout the house. The second floor contains a “Park Room” which takes advantage of the wonderful location by the central park a permeable airy glazed space joining indoor and outdoor under a slightly cantilevered wooden-clad inclined roof an addition with a subtropical holiday feel.
Seems like more and more homes these days are either opting for the rectangular look that uses both glass and stone in a distinctive fashion to create a visually appealing form or that cubic design which also sports a sleek and sophisticated look. It is the simplicity of the designs their well-defined lines which fits the contemporary minimalist trend and the ergonomics which have made them so incredibly popular.
