Linking a home with the great outdoors ensures the best of both worlds can be enjoyed regardless of the season
Busy schedules mean sacrifice, typically in the form of the simple things like enjoying the sunlight, playing with the kids outside or simply breathing in some fresh air. Designing a home around the natural elements solves this dilemma, and is a clever way to utilise the outdoors and bring its essence inside the home.
Aspect Designs created the concept of this Bella Vista, Sydney, home, which revolves around the idea of producing areas and levels that cater for informal and formal areas as well as indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. “The
brief was limited to accommodation requirements and to produce a lifestyle home centred around the water features of the pool and the koi ponds,” says Michael Sasso, principal designer and director of Aspect Designs.“The main challenge in creating contemporary homes is ensuring the homely atmosphere is maintained...”
The pool is a standout feature of the project, with a landscaped area containing a pathway of stepping stones leading directly to the pool. An undercover spa area was also built for relaxation. Expansive windows allow the pool and garden area to be enjoyed throughout the year, with views available from all levels of the home.
With the focus on a contemporary space, the home features primarily neutral tones, with materials like timber bringing warmth to the space.
This new build, handled by Starr Constructions, includes a cinema, multi-car garage, courtyard, living and kitchen area, laundry, lounge room, dining room, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are definitely no space issues in this abode, which provides plenty of room for a young family to spend time in together as well as unwind in private nooks for much-needed quiet time.
Catering for a growing family, this home is classic in style and promises plenty of space for the future.
