In the world of contemporary design and architecture the pitched roof is often dismissed as a thing of the past. Yet the ingenious architects at RSPlus have fused this classic roof structure with contemporary interiors to shape a truly captivating and stylish residence in.
A series of platforms leads to the entrance of the house which appears like a cantilevered box that is sitting on a glass square below. The large structure features unique sliding stone panels that take inspiration from the natural rocks around the house.
The design of the house was conceptualized to ensure that it will serve the young family for the next couple of decades even as its needs start to rapidly grow. Five bedrooms and bathrooms on the top level and flexible outdoor spaces that extend the living area outside complete this exquisite Melbourne residence.
There is no exaggerated importance placed on indoor-outdoor interplay and the beautiful makeover makes the most of available space. The new addition to the cottage also serves as a standalone structure with its own unique style and ambiance.
A lovely outdoor deck and lounge extend the living area outside while the soothing interior is dominated by white and other gentle neutral shades. Despite using the traditional pitched roof the interior is contemporary at every turn and the high ceiling actually ends up adding to the majesty of the home.
The lower level of the first structure contains the living area dining space and kitchen in an open floor plan. Warm wooden surfaces trendy Tom Dixon pendant lights and large sliding glass doors give the home an abundance of textural contrast.
