Acacia Avenue is one of the most sculptural buildings ever produced by Mancini Made displaying bold forms inside and out presented in pure white render. Externally, this impression is further heightened by dramatic floating roof forms.
Our vision was to create a spacious and highly contemporary family home with a sense of openness and connection between internal and external entertaining areas and ground and first floor living spaces.
The house had to be set one metre above the natural ground level to conform to required flood levels. This created an opportunity to incorporate raised garden beds and elevated views over the rear yard and pool area.
Internally, an open-tread staircase commands a central position against a double-storey feature window that floods natural light into the living spaces. A limited palette combines light honey-blond timber juxtaposed with bright white render. A bespoke light sculpture above the stairwell adds to the gallery-like essence of the house.
Our client offers the following thoughts on the process and outcome… “We were attracted to Mancini Made for their very distinct look. During the design phase, with much patience on their side, feedback and wrestling with how to accommodate some key design needs, we were provided with a very exciting design and plan. We are very much living the dream and loving our new home.”
