The property owners called upon Livingscapes
to create a design to complement an extensive
renovation of the home’s front elevation.
The brief outlined a front living space that
combined formal and contemporary styles, with
the retention of a very well established liquid amber
tree. The sloping lot needed to incorporate space for
the kids and enough parking bays for vehicles.
From the initial site inspection, it was
evident that the client would be able to maximise
the available space far better if specific levels
were created, rather than simply keeping the
original incline of the site.
To retain the existing tree was a slight challenge,
but one that Livingscapes was more than willing to
tackle. Now the liquid amber provides a fantastic
shady space for the children to play under.
The two other levels include a feature limestone
blade wall and travertine portico, combined with
the exposed aggregate driveway. This combination
of textures, along with a subtle green and white
planting theme, portrays a calm, uncomplicated
style that has abundant class.
Tracey and her team optimised the available
space, totally transforming the existing house
into a contemporary residence, while utilising
a child-friendly design.
