THIS drop-dead gorgeous home in North Perth is what good architecture is all about—making the most of space without creating fussy unnecessary areas.
Perth architect Julian Tan says that when he sat down to design his own house he knew exactly where to start.
“The kitchen is the heart of a home. I started there and the rest fell into place around it.”
A wall of black cupboards in the kitchen are stunning, and with so much light pouring in from a variety of directions they never threaten to make it gloomy.
This domestic space flows into a scullery, with its own sink, and the laundry.
Stacking glass doors lead to a private alfresco with timber decking.
This 229sqm two-bedroom/two-bathroom home maximises space with clean lines and light-filled spaces and doesn’t feel cramped.
Featuring polished concrete, honey-gold plywood and steel, it’s an urban mix of materials that combine in perfect modernity.
“We wanted to keep a raw palette,” Tan says.
“The challenge was the size of the block and we went with timber stud walls.”
The exterior is so low maintenance “you don’t have to paint; just hose it down”.
The bedrooms and study are on the second level, where marine ply floors look great and are durable.
A soaring cathedral ceiling and mezzanine combine to create a spacious, almost floating space.
The main bedroom has built-in robes and a slick en suite with double vanities, and the second bedroom has a cute hatch window to holler requests to the kitchen.
This is a unique and exciting home that is close to shops and cafes.
