Ansana delivers contemporary elegance with an Asian feel in this spacious 5,500-square-foot two-storey bungalow with attic, tucked in the leafy suburbs of Braddell.
The homeowners desired a modern tropical home with clean lines that and hence procured Ansana to do the work. The home's clean aesthetic is evidenced in the timber-decked walk-way that leads one to the mouth of the lap pool and guests access the front of the home through large sliding glass doors.
The interiors of this home centres on muted colours like creams and whites to create the perfect foil for dark-wood fixtures and furniture items. The living room accommodates Asian-themed objects and furniture made of woven materials. In addition, the living area also allows guests to appreciate the view of the lap pool and patio replete with outdoor chairs, table and canvas umbrella.
Home to a German husband and his Indonesian wife and son, the space's clean and practical design keeps clutter out of sight thanks to innovative storage. Parquet flooring adds warmth to an otherwise pared-back interior to make spending time at home even more pleasurable. The entertainment room affords a billiard table and large sliding laminate doors – in a similar shade to the parquet flooring – to hide paraphernalia. For the ignoramus, this property's fencing and awning have striking timber slats that make the home's facade an architectural statement – a nod to Ansana's keen eye for sculptural beauty and its appreciation for minimalist design. At night the home reveals its splendor via the illuminated pool emanating a soft blue glow.
Here's a home that doesn't appear pretentious or contrived yet offers a design sensibility that meets a family's modern living preferences.
