The Client's Vision:

This project started with a couple who had a lot to think about—they were on a budget, about to have a baby, and going through career changes. They knew exactly what they wanted: a four bedroom place with open living spaces, an easy flow from inside to outside, and a cozy living room where they could relax and have fun. 

From Rough Sketches to Dream Design:

The clients provided Resi Homes with some initial rough sketches for our in-house design team to draft floor plans. The clients were thrilled with the very first concept! The design smartly separates the kids' rooms from the entertaining area, using fully insulated internal and external walls, ensuring that entertaining can continue without disturbing the little ones. 

Creating a Sense of Space:

Even though the square footage is on the smaller side, it feels huge because of the clever layout. The doorways are pillarless, so the inside and outside flow seamlessly, making it feel like one big open space. The entertainment area goes right out into the backyard so that you can enjoy your private paradise.

Embracing the Challenge of a Sloping Block:

The block of the house has a significant slope, but Resi Homes was able to create a layout that captured the stunning north-west view and golden hours. Every detail was carefully thought out to make the house look great and take advantage of the beautiful surroundings.

Prioritising Functionality and Comfort:

Since there was a little kid in the family, they wanted materials that would last and be easy to maintain. They put vinyl plank flooring throughout the house because it's durable and practical. The bedrooms have plush carpets to make them cozy, and the wet areas have polished concrete that looks industrial-chic and is easy to clean. The cool polishing technique means it'll look great for years to come.

Cabinetry Elegance and Local Charm:

The kitchen and bathrooms have beautiful Shaker-style cabinets in a crisp white finish. They used Australian blackbutt timber benchtops from local suppliers to add warmth and character. These benchtops tie the house to its surroundings and look amazing.

A Dream Come True:

The result was a stunning and personalised home that perfectly suited the client's needs and preferences for a comfortable, stylish, and functional home. It was built with care and attention to detail and felt like a home throughout the entire build process, from the first design to the finishing touches. The clients said this was the home of their dreams, and this can be felt in every room of the house.
