TAKING inspiration from the famous Manhattan district, the Tribeca by Webb & Brown-Neaves combines edgy industrial looks with a floor plan designed to maximise increasingly narrow home sites.
The chic streetfront of the awardwinning builder’s latest display marries rustic, exposed finishes with raw and unfinished interiors in a style that encapsulates the best of New York’s historic architecture.
“The facade of the home sets the expectation for what lies within,” Webb & BrownNeaves general manager Simon Birkhead said.
“The combination of metal, wood and glass strikes angular lines and sleek finishes, and allows the home to be an unobtrusive, attractive addition to any streetscape.”
Free-flowing spaces feature in the almost 9m-wide floor plan, disregarding the narrow footprint and giving every room a sense of grandeur.
“The industrial, warehouse feel of the Tribeca is reminiscent of ultimate New York residences,” Mr Birkhead said.
“The feature timber-clad wall, exposed airconditioning duct and varying shaped feature windows all contribute to making the design different to anything Webb & Brown-Neaves has delivered to date.”
Past the striking elevation, the entry reveals a geometric layout, starting with a foyer with a shopper’s entry from the garage, a guest powder room and a fully equipped laundry room.
The tiled floors lead the eye towards the rear of the creative design, in which the main living area extends all the way to the alfresco entertaining and pool area.
Commercial-style appliances, a combination of Calcutta marble and stainless-steel benchtops, as well as charcoal cabinetry mix with the exposed metal beams in the kitchen.
A noteworthy inclusion is the scullery, tucked neatly behind the kitchen.
Towards the back of the home, the lounge and dining area share an eye- catching slatted timber wall juxtaposed against the raw metal of the exposed airconditioning duct.
A deep-set window with a protruding metal frame – a custom inclusion duplicated in the master suite upstairs – creates a talking point in the dining room.
Off to the side, there is a study nook nestled beneath the stairwell maximising the space and catering to the demands of today’s lifestyles.
Past the feature staircase are three bedrooms centred on a sitting room.
The master bedroom is to the front of the house on a cantilevered section and has a walk-in robe and a stunning hotel-inspired ensuite with a freestanding bath and a unique vanity unit with an extra-wide sink.
In a separate wing toward the rear of the upper level are two secondary bedrooms with built-in robes, the main bathroom, a linen closet and a separate powder room.
