CUSTOM HOME COLLECTION
A difficult block doesn't have to restrict design
Read about one of our most relaxing custom homes in Perth.
Pindan Homes are the experts in difficult and unique blocks and this custom build was no exception. Challenged with a sloping corner block, the client was keen to have two attractive street elevations, with the main entrance and parking on one side and a garage and second entrance on the lower, secondary street.
Having four teenage children in tow, it was imperative each child had their own space, as well as two separate entertaining areas - one for the parents and one for the teenagers (for friends and visiting guests).
The home also needed to be centred on solar passive design principles for maximising energy efficiency as well as encapsulating the needs of the owners.
Ultimately, the brief was to create an open plan beachside home, accommodating a large family and intergenerational living while employing strong solar passive design principles, inviting the outside, inside.
Located on Trigg’s beautiful coastline, the custom home was to encapsulate the coastal climate all year round, resulting in a warm, welcoming home that seamlessly integrates the indoor and outdoor areas to fully take advantage of Perth’s great weather.
The extensive first floor glazing, darker colour render of the upper level, low pitch roofline and splayed gutter profile was designed to create a separation between ground floor and roof, giving the illusion the roof is floating above the home. The exterior showcases a timeless yet understated sophistication, utilising natural wood and stone and carried throughout the rest of the home.
Like most custom homes in Perth, this kitchen is a chef’s dream, with all the latest Miele appliances, pantry plus ample, excess storage, appliance cabinet and breakfast bar for meals on the go. The multipurpose scullery and laundry leads to the outdoor service area and herb garden, complete with outdoor shower for trips home from the beach.
Dimmable LED lighting in every room creates mood and atmosphere, while ducted air conditioning throughout and smart wiring ensures this build has all the latest technologies and gadgets imaginable!
Splayed gutters extend from the wide eaves to give the custom home ample protection from the summer heat while allowing the winter sun to penetrate into the home - further design aspects attributing to the high energy rating of the home.
