Contemporary Stone Residence

This monolithic looking architectural residence is located in Armadale, an up and coming leafy suburb of Melbourne, Australia. It looks more carved than built. The house is characterized by both a sculptural gravity and an ethereal weightlessness that is most seen when sunlight illuminates the texture of the stone.

On the ground floor, the generously lit, open-plan living area opens completely to an adjoining inner courtyard, thanks to fully retractable, floor-to-ceiling glass doors that have been specially designed for frequent entertainment of the owners. On the upper floor there are two guest rooms and a spacious master suite, which opens onto an inner courtyard with Japanese maple trees and has a separate outdoor shower and a granite-lined bathroom with a free-standing bathtub, and a sturdy basin block made of solid stone blocks offers another Room of serenity and relaxation.

The interiors are reminiscent of the paradoxes of the outside: the minimalist aesthetic of stone floors, white walls and decorations is complemented by a whimsical selection of furniture, ranging from modernist classics to vintage pieces to bespoke designs that playfully reflect the personality of the customers .

The outside areas are carefully designed to create a wildly natural look, and a large pool with balconies above it looks very inviting. The designers and architects paid attention to every detail to make this home a masterpiece and they succeeded!
