There just is something that makes us uncomfortable about the name ‘Elliott Ripper’ but if you look past the ‘ripper’ part of it then you are set to find a lovely modern home that can be a beautiful bachelor hub and also a wonderful residence for a small family.
The curved wall was used to create a covered exit to the rooftop terrace where the family living here can enjoy fresh air and views of the surroundings. On the inside the wall also acts as a defining feature helping the architects design a spectacular display of wooden beams and details contrasting with the white walls. The tall graceful curved beams achieve their length by being joined by unusual mirrored dovetails secured with wooden pegs.
The downstairs living area includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms – the layout is designed to be flexible allowing the owner to rearrange the floor plan to add further bedrooms. The package is completed by a spa therapy room and heated outdoor swimming pool on the terrace. The property on Halifax Street has a price tag at nearly $5 million making it one of the most expensive apartments in Adelaide.
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 outdoor fireplace is in the perfect place to warm up on a cool evening after taking a relaxing dip in the pool. No need to worry about dripping water as the treated wood floor has plenty of drainage. The view of the terraced lawns appears to give you a breath of pure oxygen to both energize and relax you at the same time.
