NPR Building Concepts Project 2
Situated in the heart of the luscious Yarra Valley, this stunning Gruyere abode from the team at NPR Building Concepts seamlessly fuses sustainable functionality with a unique custom design to see the years through with style. Designed by J.Kidman Architect and Design, the dwelling makes immediate impact through its soaring high ceilings, open-plan layout and floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing ample natural light flow to travel through and illuminate the home, while perfectly offsetting the sprawling, mountainous views outdoors.
Expertly navigating against the property’s sloping block, NPR Building Concepts executed an incredible roof with six different roof pitches. Translating to stunning raked ceilings indoors – including a custom Gyprock Rigitone acoustic ceiling – the home is truly built to last, complete with Tasmanian Oak flooring, COLORBOND exterior cladding, a Daikin HRV airconditioning system and an uber impressive three 10,000-litre water tanks that the home runs off.
With sustainability at the very core of the build, the home is heavily insulated, meaning heat is preserved during the winter, and a sense of cool is easily maintained during summer. Effectively designed to ensure year-round comfort and to minimise greenhouse gas emissions, the abode also makes clever use of its expansive windows; where Low-E glass windows reduce the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that comes through the glass.
An open-plan living and dining space is a real highlight to the home, where expansive glass doors open out onto an elegant alfresco area, and beautiful timber decking. Situated in the heart of the home, the kitchen makes clever use of a beautiful freestanding kitchen island, alongside graceful pendant lighting, and tile splashback.
Clean, cohesive lines within the joinery effortlessly conceal any appliances, with the refreshing timber throughout the space brilliantly juxtaposing clean pops of white. Expansive views are a given from every room in this stellar abode, with the master bedroom boasting plush carpet, sleek white walls and sliding doors opening out to the dwelling’s backyard.
The home’s opulent bathroom promises hours of relaxation and leisure, complete with a natural stone vanity, ample-sized mirror, spacious walk-in shower and convenient under-bench storage space. Built to accommodate a growing family – from entertaining among family and friends, to moments of solace in the backyard, this eco-friendly abode is nothing short of a Yarra Valley gem.
