Awarded the 2018 Housing Industry Association (HIA) Victorian Best Custom-Built Home up to $500,000 category, this project had a clear brief to design and build a unique home that would be a standout in the neighbourhood. Set among traditional-style properties, this contemporary adobe was expertly designed and built by Langham Developments within budget, and showcases the precise attention to detail for which it is renowned.
Featuring fully rendered Hebel cladding, stained cedar boards, and large A&L panel windows, the façade has striking street appeal. Positioned on a corner block, the frontage was designed to be enjoyed from all angles.
Offering plenty of space, the home features four generous-sized bedrooms spread across two storeys, and a ground-level powder room that doubles as an en suite. The LED downlights throughout provide optimum illumination, while the handle-less joinery throughout the home helps create a sophisticated and modern aesthetic.
Designed with convenience in mind, the home also includes a semi-cantilevered solid timber staircase, a daybed with views of the lush gardens, and built-in feature niches. To accommodate the clients’ love for entertaining, a covered alfresco area can be accessed from the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area via glass stacker doors, which provide a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
The site’s topography proved challenging when designing walls close to neighbouring boundaries. However, through clever design solutions, the Langham Developments team were able to meet all mandatory wall heights as required by building regulations.
