All of the apartment’s architectural materials have been sensitively selected to add a contemporary feel to the apartment both contrasting and complementing the historic frontage of the historic building beneath. The main structure is clad in a lightweight silver and white Alucobond skin; limestone and Calcutta marble stonework and lime washed timber floorboards and decking complete the elegant design.
The animal and bird figures and motifs also form part of the rooms as even the kitchen seems to follow a similar pattern. The arrangement of the rooms in certain angles puts forward a messed up look bringing in some snazzy charm.
On the inside you see wide open spaces and plenty of modern architecture and design that uses sleek and well defined lines. The generous use of glass in the form of floor to ceiling glass windows offers unobstructed views of the sea at all times and from all levels of the villa. An array of balcony spaces private hubs pool deck and lush green surroundings ensure that you spend as much time outside as you do indoors.
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.
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.
