The architects have divided the available space into two broad sections – an active area and a quiet zone and the entire arrangement follows this predetermined pattern. The beautiful open dining space an ultra-modern kitchen and a relaxing living area with a large L-shape sofa taking a center spot are arranged ever so elegantly to ensure that function naturally follows form.
The use of energy-saving lighting installations water saving and recycling systems and smart solar design make the Elliot Ripper house all the more energy efficient. With interiors clad in pristine white sleek modern décor and warm hues splattered generously here and there this is one home that delivers in style!
Of course the pool and the back garden steal plenty of attention as they provide you a with a soothing fresh water dip in case you are bored with all the ocean views or need a change from the setting as you return from the nearest beach. This is all about living it up in an eco-friendly style.
The common theme of the home seems to be a rustic charm and uniqueness that comes wrapped in soft colors and a touch of contemporary style; something that seems all too natural for a Nordic setting and style!
Sculptures that are made out of glass and stone bestow an artistic outlook to this contemporary design and the extravagant use of glass in the form of floor to ceiling windows gives those inside unobstructed views. While the lower level sports the living space and the dining area the upper level finds space for the entire owner’s suite which includes a library a piano room a master suite a refreshing spa and an inviting sundeck. A wonderful merger of form and function…
The project has been developed on three levels. On ground level there’s a small enclosed area that accommodates a house keeper the laundry room and all other services needed in the house. Then there’s the concrete level where all social activities happen; there’s the living room a dinning room the kitchen and the swimming pool.
Maybe it is just nostalgia or maybe the fact that one can never go back in time revisit the memories of the past but everyone of us is fond of those ‘wonder years’ of the past. And this home in Melbourne might well have that same allure for many who might look back at times that were simpler but also happier.
