Hard not to go with flow of su­perla­tives

Be­spoke mas­ter­piece came with long wish list and de­liv­ered mag­nif­i­cently, amaz­ingly, beau­ti­fully, su­perbly... By NATALIE HORDOV

AMAZ­ING, beau­ti­ful, in­cred­i­ble: there is no short­age of ad­jec­tives to de­scribe this award­win­ning, be­spoke, two-storey home.

It is the cre­ation of many, very tal­ented peo­ple.

The four-year project be­gan with a de­sign by De­sign­wise’s Adrian De Lu­cia.

“Adrian’s scope was to de­sign a home where the gar­den was to flow into the house and, whilst al­low­ing lots of nat­u­ral light, we wanted suf­fi­cient wall space to dis­play our art col­lec­tion,” the own­ers said.

“Ma­te­ri­als were to be con­crete and wood with sim­ple lines and lots of nat­u­ral light.

“Adrian ful­filled ev­ery as­pect of our de­sign brief and more.”

Spadac­cini Homes brought the de­sign to life, em­brac­ing the dif­fer­ent quirks of the own­ers’ de­sign and mak­ing them work.

Op­u­lence In­te­ri­ors’ Gavin Lim added the fin­ish­ing touches to the home.

“With­out his keen eye, the to­tal at­ten­tion to de­tail would have been in­com­plete,” the own­ers said.

The magic be­gins as soon as you see the house.

The na­tive gar­den at the front at­tracts birds, bees and but­ter­flies and pro­vides colour year­round.

“The street view of the house is stun­ning,” the own­ers said.

“The land­scap­ing, par­tic­u­larly the plant­ing of the ve­randa with the Pride Of Madeira, makes the house sit com­fort­ably with the land­scape.

“Once the gar­den ma­tures it will be sim­ply mag­nif­i­cent.”

The unique beauty con­tin­ues with a stun­ning tim­ber ceil­ing fea­ture in the foyer cre­ated by Mr Lim and The Whale Carver Mark Yates.

An off-form con­crete wall in the open-plan liv­ing area was in­spired by Paraty House in Brazil and the own­ers said Mr Yates was the only per­son brave enough to take the work on and had cre­ated a mas­ter­piece.

“We love the formed con­crete wall with all its dif­fer­ent tex­tures and lights and the splash of colour from the paint­ings,” they said.
