Since no part of the previous Eichler home on the lot could be used the architects planned for a brand new residence that drew inspiration from the form of the design of Joseph Eichler. With a gray exterior and a bright orange door the home looks just like a beautiful Eichler residence to those who quickly drive past it.
As is the case with many of these traditional heritage homes the homeowners of the Bundaroo House wanted to keep the street façade of the residence intact and it is the rear addition and extension that brings an air of freshness and modernity.
With a spacious garage and home workspace this 2-bedroom 3-bathroom residence will set you back and if you happen to live in the neighborhood you can even check it out firsthand this Sunday before making the final call! Giving a 1960’s home in the bustling neighborhood of Sydney a smart modern makeover Bijl Architecture turned to innovative design and sweeping alfresco spaces to create a stylish contemporary family home.
The four-story structure offers a total living space of 600 square meters and a curated collection of décor that elegantly blends modern masterpieces beautiful flea market finds and vintage pieces gives the industrial loft its trademark style.
Bringing together two contrasting worlds and a window into both majestic mountains and the bustling cityscape the relaxing on the outskirts of is truly exceptional. Nestled on a sloped site the design of the home by I/O Architects ensures that most of its open outdoor space is hidden from the street view even as the hidden second level beneath the ground level offers additional privacy. Much of the house has been designed to honor this delicate balance between smart views and sufficient privacy as wood glass and dark metal shape the residence’s inimitable exterior.
The lower level of the loft holds the small living area along with the kitchen and dining room that are clad in black white brick and wood! A spiral staircase leads to the terrace and also elevates the industrial appeal of the flamboyant loft.
It is the second level (cleverly hidden into the slope of the lot) that holds the master bedroom kids’ bedrooms and guest bedrooms even as one finds a seamless connection between both floors of the Pagoda House. A smart home that is both practical in design and fascinating in its form!
