Step­ping up

Australian House & Garden - - TOP 50 ROOMS -

22 Ar­chi­tects An­thony Chan and Meyvin Pus­pita drew in­spi­ra­tion for this Mel­bourne room from cafes with win­dows that open right up, al­low­ing the out­side in. Split-fold alu­minium and glass doors be­tween the con­crete ban­quette and pool area can be opened en­tirely or sealed shut when cosi­ness is called for. “The form of the bench is sharp and mod­ern, but sub­tle colour and tex­ture vari­a­tions de­liver soft­ness,” says An­thony. The bench con­tin­ues around the cor­ner, un­der the TV and fire; above them is en­gi­neered-tim­ber cab­i­netry. The sooth­ing neu­tral­ity of the in­te­rior brings the bright-green Bam­busa old­hamii on the rear fence into fo­cus.
