When a sloping block of land becomes the foundation of a tri-level home


A sloping site is always an extra challenge for homebuilders, but this tri-level home can only be created on this uneven spot

With the award-winning, split-level Trilogy 35, MOJO Homes ticks all the boxes for those seeking a generous family home for a sloping block. This tri-level home offers all the flexibility and space the larger family needs — and its contemporary design appeals to those who favour all things modern.

Says Sandra Setian, MOJO Homes’ Interior Designer, “The new Trilogy is our first foray in to a true split-level home design, and what a showstopper. Designed for sloping blocks, it spans three levels which are joined by half landings. The lower level contains the car accommodation, laundry, home theatre and home office, with a handy powder room nearby.

“The mid-level,” she adds, “is the entertainer’s level, with the kitchen, living, dining and outdoor living areas located here. The top level houses four bedrooms. This includes the master bedroom with its huge ensuite, walk-in robe and private balcony, as well as a family bathroom — plenty of room for everyone!”

As an example of the Trilogy’s adaptability, the home theatre can be a guest bedroom with ensuite if preferred, making it ideal for families that need to prioritise or plan for multigenerational living. And as for space, thanks to the split-level design the central zone of the home, which features a large kitchen and dining space that flows out to a big outdoor area, is open, airy and ideal for entertaining.

In the modern kitchen the emphasis is on contemporary hard-wearing finishes. The generous benchtops are of Caesarstone Nordic Loft, a light taupe colour with a clean Scandinavian feel. The underbench cupboard doors are of Polytec Strata Grey in Sheen finish while the overhead cupboards are of Polytec Notaio Walnut in Ravine finish.

“The concept of this home is contemporary finishes with a dramatic edge. This has been achieved using a white, charcoal and walnut timber palette with rust tones throughout to add texture and drama,” explains Sandra. “The feel is quite masculine and moody, but it’s not heavy or overpowering. “Wallpaper has also been used to add texture and personality to some rooms, such as the master bedroom and home theatre.

“The Trilogy includes many dynamic elements, from fantastic built-in joinery in the home office to the kitchen window splashback that is edged with a herringbone pattern tile with a metallic rust finish,” continues Sandra. “The contemporary theme is continued on the home’s striking exterior which is painted in two shades of grey and warmed by the cedar colour of the front door, garage doors and second-storey cladding. A stacked stone feature to the side of the entry employs a mix of colours to pull together the overall design.”

The end result is a warm and spacious home that is tailor-made for sloping blocks and families who want to experience the best of modern living.
