The idea was to design a home whose aura was as close as possible to the homeowners’ previous farm house clad in wood paper and concrete. Criss-crossing wooden beams make up the most prominent feature of the home and allow natural ventilation to make its way through to the top level.
Designed with a sense of visual flair by Smart Design Studio the Lamble Residence gives its denizens 270-degree ocean views along with a mesmerizing glimpse into the Great Dividing Range that lies in the distance. Featuring a unique exterior draped in wood and semi-minimal interiors that bring the beachy vibe indoors this house allows you to relax in style.
Instead this elegant home is all about reconnecting with nature. Surrounded by ample greenery and offering unabated views of the ocean in the distance the minimalist residence is spread across five levels that tap into the panoramic landscape outside.
Bold window frames and shingle-style architecture typify the exterior while the interior is clad in cool neutral hues that seem to be borrowed from both coastal and cottage styles. Exposed wooden beams and metallic surfaces add a dash of industrial charm as well with a salvaged wooden accent wall standing out visually in the front hall.
The compact living area with a comfy couch and a bright red chair flows into the adjacent dining space. An exquisite kitchen in white and grey lies on the other side of the room and is separated spatially from the dining area using frameless glass doors. Twin Globus chairs in the kitchen add to the tasteful elegance of the setting.
Large frameless folding doors ensure that the transition from the public areas to the porch is both seamless and unabated. The private quarters are housed on the top level with four en suite bedrooms located on one side and the three children’s bedrooms on the other. A suspended walkway links both of these wings while plush decor accentuates the opulence of the home.
Reclaimed decor can be found everywhere with old sofas washing machines retro lamps from the ’60s and vintage chairs that have been reupholstered making their presence felt. Every corner of the house features a furnishing that looks like a lovely DIY idea!
