The exterior has recognizable Frustrum roofs, an angular, sloping structure that distinguishes the house from those around it. From the exterior, this feature offers a novel dimension to the home, evoking the curiosity of those on the outside looking in. Once inside the stunning home, the two largest of the Frustrum roofs reveal their unique and geometric structure, reverse step concrete pyramids. It is rare for the ceiling of a property to be the central feature, however, these reverse steps create an eye-catching contrast, ricocheting light from the sky-light onto all four corners of the living space. Poised within this geometric roof structure, there is a chrome-cross structure, from which mid-century style lamps hang in a metal orbit.
Another key design feature of the home, paying homage to the history of Australian design is the breeze blocks on the exterior wall. These blocks are featured both on the half-height wall at the gate of the property and on the walls surrounding the perimeter of the home. They offer a sense of weightlessness, a type of ‘cut through’ in contrast to the solid light grey blocks that clad the majority of the home. These breeze blocks continue to the interior of the home protruding from the classic block wall, a small row of them at hip-height by the front door, the perfect shelf space for keys.
The colour palette of this living/ dining space is muted, to draw the eye to the structures created within the frame of the home. The polished concrete floors create a continuity and are in keeping with the quasi-brutalist theme of the home.
