Chisholm Constructions Project 1
Chisholm Constructions created this architecturally designed home – a combined effort with Pleysier Perkins. Showcasing a refreshing usage of raw materials, this contemporary dwelling provides everything the homeowners need for a lifestyle of relaxation and entertaining.
Garnering ample, well-deserved attention along the street front, the home’s façade is dynamic in shape and features a complementary combination of textures, from the Adbri concrete blocks and timber on the first storey, to the Vestis Aluminium metal cladding on the second. This top floor appears to be floating above the main structure, contributing to the
overall striking appearance. A simple timber fence adds warmth and matches the tones of the unique front door.
Entering the home, it’s clear that the narrow block was carefully considered during the design and construction process, with a well-thought-out flow from the front of the house to the back. Towards the rear is the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. This space is all about minimalism; a strong linear profile in the kitchen works in perfect harmony with the polished concrete floors. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors lead out to the alfresco and pool area to include these in the one open living space.
The master bedroom is located upstairs by the gloriously wide front window. External electric louvres paired with a long curtain provide privacy and combat the western sun, keeping the room cool during the warmer months. This space champions simplicity by sticking to just a few standout elements like the V-groove panelled feature wall, which is a particular highlight. Director Tom Chisholm first established Chisholm Homes in 2012. Over the last decade, the boutique building company has worked hard to become a well-known and respected premier construction firm, servicing Bayside and Mornington Peninsula suburbs.
