This timber and glass pavilion is the second house in the development and continues the theme of coastal modernity.
Following the principles of the InForm ‘Retreat’ design, but on a larger scale, the house includes a double garage, four bedrooms and a lounge, as well as an open plan kitchen, meals and living space.
The characteristic long lineal roof plane caps the entire building, protecting the loggia and deck that extends the length of the northern exterior. A full height vertical timber screen protects the loggia from the west, and creates a dynamic front façade.
Large full height black aluminium doors connect the living areas and master bedroom to the deck and sweeping lawn beyond. The black aluminium provides a striking contrast with the smoky grey oiled timber cladding and crisp white fascias. A white concrete brick blade wall separates the entry from the loggia and extends into the living area to form the fireplace.
White oiled oak floors add an appropriate contemporary but rustic sensibility to the interior palette, which also includes stainless steel and marble bench tops, oak joinery and a white mosaic tiled splash back.
InForm is a residential design and construct company.
In association with architects Pleysier Perkins, we provide a holistic service including architecture, interior design, cost planning, permit acquisition, building documentation and construction.
We offer a wide range of pre-designed houses or a custom architectural design service.
The pre-designed houses are the result of a rigorous collaboration between Pleysier Perkins and InForm. While consistently modern, the range is diverse with unlimited flexibility in the way the designs can be developed. The result is therefore always unique and considered, tailored to suit our clients’ tastes and requirements.
All projects, including pre-designs and custom designs, begin with a concept design stage where a site plan, floor plans and a 3D model are completed prior to a building quotation being established. The final design specifications and interiors are then determined in collaboration with our clients prior to completing contract documentation.
InForm has had 22 years’ experience developing trade and contractor relationships, as well as refining processes and methodologies, which ensure cost efficiencies and consistent quality construction.
Our aim is to produce superbly designed and constructed houses for our clients in the most efficient and intelligent way possible.
