The response to this design challenge was both original and aesthetically pleasing. The townhouses mirror each other by sharing the same essential outline and dimensions. This includes bold gable rooflines and matching central entranceways softened by a curved wall in off-white brick. Identical vertically-battened dark timber screens provide both privacy and a stylishly minimal front façade.
Each dwelling is then given a distinctly individual identity with the upper level of one townhouse rendered in off-white hit-and-miss brickwork, the other in thin vertical strips of dark timber extending to a screened front window. The overall effect is one of harmony combined with individuality.
The interior design continues to explore these twin qualities with an emphasis on horizontal elements such as elongated black-framed windows, extensive cabinetry and a curved marble island workbench.
Light-filled living, dining and entertainment spaces are incorporated into an extended open plan that flows onto outdoor entertaining areas and gardens. Aspects of the exterior design are also reflected in the interior, such as the soft-white vertical tiling that forms the luxurious bathtub. A meticulously-crafted staircase leads to the upper level and adds a sculptural focal point.
