Designed by Feldman Architecture for a couple with three boys much of the residence reflects the personality of the homeowners and their desire to live in an open functional and modern setting where ergonomics are intertwined with effective design. Spread across four different levels it is the two lower floors that contain the public spaces while the third level houses the kids’ bedrooms and the master suite.
More often than not contemporary homes are shaped by the landscape that surrounds them the contours of the lot they sit on and of course local architectural style and weather conditions.
That is something you would find on the wish list of many across the planet. And sometimes in order to realize this dream you might have to work with an awkward lot a small cliff and a lack of expansive space. But all that is well worth the hassle if you end up with a home like in Australia!
The real showstopper at this home is its indoor pool with a ceiling featuring a painted faux sky on a plaster finish. An additional LED lighting system adds sparkle to this amazing setting that matches the imposing mountains outside both in terms of elegance and grandeur. The outdoors become a part of each and every room at the Wheeler Residence and this is what makes this enchanting escape so very special.
Yet the resultant home overcomes these hurdles with smart planning and precise execution as every inch of space is utilized to the hilt. Structural walls and the orientation of the home bring ample privacy even while opening it up completely toward the ocean views outside.
