Mt Martha Design + Drafting Project 10
Functional style is showcased beautifully in this comfortable family home designed by Mt Martha design + drafting. Brought to life by Voller Builders, contrasting materials and sharp lines give this minimalist haven impressive curb appeal. The ground floor of the abode is finished with a polished concrete render, while the first floor is clad in Corten weathered steel to create an impressive textured contrast that draws your eye to the cantilevered design.
Continuity and flow are established throughout the dwelling as concrete becomes a key material, from the rendered exterior to the concrete benchtops in the kitchen and al fresco. Large windows fill the home with light and add to the alluring façade, while the pool and alfresco are visible from the front of the home, establishing a sense of luxury.This abode was intelligently designed to accommodate a desire for a modern and low-maintenance home for a couple with four young adult children. Mt Martha design + drafting achieved this through the inclusion of distinct zones that create privacy and personal space. The master suite and study sit on the first floor, while the other bedrooms are off a light-flooded hallway at the rear of the dwelling. The hallways of the home feature face of wall sliding doors and skylights to create a symmetrical design and airy atmosphere.
The communal living spaces showcase open plan design and create areas for the family to come together. Floor-to-ceiling, glass stacking doors offer a seamless transition from the internal living spaces to the al fresco and pool, assisted by bi-fold windows in the kitchen that open to an impressive concrete benchtop. As the home is in an area that’s prone to bushfires and floods, careful design considerations had to be made to meet additional site, height and material compliances. Several eco-friendly features have been incorporated in the design, including double-glazed windows, solar hot water, rainwater tanks and optimised solar access by maximising north-facing windows.
