Perched at the waterfront with breathtaking views of Egmont Bay, this minimalist contemporary residence serves as a modern homage to the architectural styles of the seventies. Designed with sustainability in mind, the building seamlessly integrates into the landscape, minimizing the need for extensive excavation and fill. Positioned towards the lower end of the property, the residence provides convenient access to the water and sets the stage for the potential future development of a jetty.
The design palette features warm tones of rendered concrete and light wood, creating a serene and calming atmosphere. Injections of vibrant colors are strategically used as accents in common areas, such as leisure spaces. The striking furniture within this space serves as a transformative element, elevating the entire ambiance and infusing it with a captivating blend of modernity, sophistication, and artistic flair. The careful curation of these pieces, characterized by clean lines, high-performance fabrics, bold shapes, and a commitment to both functionality and aesthetics, contributes to the overall visual and experiential appeal of the environment.
The design further incorporates a mix of breeze blocks and glass blocks, introducing texture and visual interest. These elements not only contribute to the overall aesthetic but also allow for the play of light and shadow, creating a dynamic and ever-changing ambiance within the interiors.
The sustainable design principles, and the careful selection of materials showcase a commitment to both functionality and aesthetics. This waterfront contemporary abode not only offers stunning views but also harmonizes with its natural surroundings, embodying a balance between modern living and environmental sensitivity.
