Darren Carnell Architects have designed a contemporary home perfect for entertaining and outdoor living.

The two level home boasts a city view across the natural bushland park, a rich palette of natural timbers and stone finishes and an understated elegance. The house draws its palette of grey/white tones through zinc, antique white render and reclaimed blackbutt from the park. Joinery and furnishings enrich the function of the spaces while adding to the individual aesthetic.

The clients brief was for a house displaying a contemporary aesthetic and finished to the highest standard. City views across the park and a rich palette of natural timbers and stone finishes were an essential part of the brief in achieving a house with an understated elegance yet robust enough to entertain grandchildren. The project is located opposite Napier Park which contains the second largest stand of river red gum trees in the State –the house draws its natural palette of grey/white tones expressed through zinc, antique white render and reclaimed blackbutt elements from the natural bushland park.

The clients have a large family and the project brief was for a living area that would respond to a large family gathering while allowing a degree of intimacy when only the 2 were home. The living area can be amalgamated with external spaces forming a completely seamless ground plane. The house is designed with the living/entertaining areas at ground level with the upper floor designed as an apartment for the couple containing the master bedroom, his/hers en suites-robes and a personal retreat; the lift allows the couple to enter the basement after a night out and transfer directly to their suite without engaging with the ground level spaces.

The project included complete interiors  including cutlery, crockery and placemats
