Whitewater Place

Residential – new

The brief was to create a multi-level home to maximize use of land, slope and aspect. Clients required 4 bedrooms with bed 1 to be separated and include an en-suite and walk-in robe. The main bathroom was to have a separate toilet with a conveniently located walk in linen cupboard.

The design was to include a triple garage; a large storage room; a studio for a home office/salon, with a separate access; plus a separate “man cave”/rumpus with an ensuite, bar and cellar for friday night drinks and footy grand finals. A large swimming pool was a must with a generous alfresco/outdoor living area and direct access from main internal living/dining/kitchen areas.

The clients commanded a  minimalistic style flowing through the design of the building, landscaping and interiors and they requested a conventional, economical construction method.

The solution by design studio 22 designer, Tony Ross, was a staggered/terraced (3) multi-level design which achieved maximum floor area, made ultimate use of the topography with unassuming, complementary landscaping allowing the architecture and pool area to dominate.

Minimalist design with economical and conventional construction was achieved by using lightweight timber framing and expanded polystyrene insulation board to give the appearance of concrete without the expense, allowing more build ability/ flexibility.

Multi-levels allow for the required separation with triple garage, storage room, home office/salon studio and enormous “man cave” located on the ground floor/street level. A wide staircase leads to the mid level which expands through to generous bedrooms and bathrooms with sprawling living areas which overlook and spill onto the epitome of outdoor entertaining areas.

The ultimate in parents’ retreats is hidden away on the next level where it captures the expansive ocean and mountain views.

Spaciousness and privacy abound in this executive family home which is a tribute to Tony at design studio 22’s design skills and building knowledge.
