This chic abode is a sanctuary for an active growing family
Cedar House has a striking modern design, which is clearly evident from the street. With a unique street presence of a recessed entry door unit, cleverly designed with privacy glazing, organic dry-stone walling and soft white walls, the building reads like a feature of the landscape. The clients’ design brief was to take maximum advantage of the wide block and create a clean, contemporary home to suit their busy, evolving lifestyle — and to provide a sanctum in which the growing family can thrive.
Upon entry, the home reveals a light-filled gallery — an oversized void area with six metres of architectural glazing and a central staircase boasting spotted gum open treads and a steel mono-string spine. The internal courtyard was designed as an architectural feature and floods the double-height living area with light during the day.
To address the slope of the block, the design has two subtle level changes, with a third up to the master suite, bedrooms and retreat. Staying true to the overarching design concept, a simple yet robust materials palette, taking cues from Nordic design, features light timbers, natural concrete tones and an abundance of glazing.
The kitchen is a design showpiece. Here you will see contrasting finishes, reflective surfaces and integrated passageways which cleverly lead to the working areas of the home. One of the most valued inclusions of this build is a spacious mudroom with a wall dedicated to custom joinery and clever storage.
Successfully achieving a strong sense of style throughout a home requires thoughtfulness and balance. Gremmo Homes has achieved this in all spaces by cleverly combining modern finishes with touches of warmth and softness.
