Designed by AB studio, this extraordinary Caulfield home is one of Melbourne’s finest. A combination of attention to detail and carefully considered visual elements come together to create a modern masterpiece.

To ensure each light fixture used throughout the home fulfilled a specific purpose, Unios worked closely with the clients to design a tailored lighting system.

The striking black fac?ade sets this home apart from the rest, while the living room’s 5m-high ceiling fosters a spacious and opulent atmosphere. Unios’s AUrA eight Pendant light acts as the room’s centrepiece, which the rest of the home is designed to complement. the pendant’s stunning chrome finish envelops eight hand-spun polished steel spheres to make a statement unlike any other.

The beautiful marble and timber finishes used throughout the kitchen and dining areas are accentuated by strategically placed, surface-mounted Apex Downlight series lights, which have a minimalist look and provide optimum illumination.

The home’s minimalist theme is encouraged by the use of titanium surface Mounted Downlights that integrate seamlessly into the ceilings. AUrA Wall lights accompany a spectacular AUrA Five Pendant light to effectively illuminate the hallways and second dining room.

To achieve a luxurious feel, only the finest finishes and fixtures were used in the four bedrooms. the enormous main bedroom looks over the living room and the AUrA eight Pendant light.

The property’s exterior is fitted with a range of wall lights, uplights and flood lights that bring the outdoor area to life and make it perfect for entertaining. the distinct angular beam of the Moonstone Wall Light complements the home’s angular and industrial design features, while emerald Inground Uplights gently illuminate the surrounding landscaping.

The expert installation of a custom-designed lighting system has made this home one of the most admired projects in Melbourne’s architecture and construction industries.
