A Harmony of Rich Elements

A Harmony of Rich Elements

The crisp white aesthetic that goes hand-in-hand with today’s modern trends is elevated in this luxury build by Switch Homes, thanks to a key design choice.

In a perfect example of how simple can often be best when it comes to design, the soft element of oak speak grand volumes in this South Perth homes.

The three-storey, three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence is beautifully design to incorporate streams of natural light, soaring ceilings and oak elements to enhance its homely ambience.

Switch Homes representative Anthony Scurria says that the home offers a contemporary yet timeless style, captivating assets and pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

“The home is primarily all white render masonry: however, it’s the inclusion of different textures that have really elevated our façade,” he says.

“Natural timbers, concrete and a custom white metal screening provide a point of difference and a luxe street frontage.”

Positioned on a narrow lot, the home has been cleverly designed to utilise the tight space, with Switch Homes specialising in this popular infill style of build.

“Like most blocks in Perth’s metropolitan area, the block was narrow and long, so utilising the space was of the utmost importance,” Anthony says.

Inside, the rich elements of oak have been beautifully worked together in the kitchen, complemented by a mixture of materials and soft tones.

“We’re most excited about the marble benchtop that sits on a natural oak cabinet, and the three copper pendant lights which make the area look like it’s a piece of art, not just a functional work space,” Anthony says.

“We installed a statuario venato marble benchtop with built-in wine fridge that enables the homeowners to have around four to six guests sitting and chatting while they prepare delectable morsels on their induction cooktop- did I mention it has a teppanyaki function?”

Together the space is one to marvel, with its simple yet elegant design choices.

In true modern style, the kitchen space extends through to the dining and living area for one sweeping open-plan living space with rectified matte stone clay flooring.

Unique elements ensure the home is a step above the rest, impressing visitors with designs that push the boundaries.

The open-plan living area is positioned on the second level to capitalize on stunning views of the Perth skyline.
“Being the area the homeowners would entertain and live in the most, we wanted it to be high impact,” Anthony says.

The balcony seamlessly extends to the entertainment space, as a true alfresco would, through bi-fold doors to enjoy the stunning views from its elevated position.

“We also installed smart wiring, so that the home effectively “talks” with each room,” Anthony says. “The owners can control lighting, sound and security with the touch of a button.”

A stylish oak and steel staircase provides access to the clever loft, which is used as a games room and overlooks the open-plan living area.

“Creating a void over the dining area and loft space resulted in an imposing and captivating space, making the room feel voluminous, which keeps visitors guessing how we pulled it off,” Anthony says.

The master bedroom also sits on the second level with a walk-in robe and separate built-in-robe, along with a luxurious ensuite featuring Caesarstone and oak cabinetry, dual showers and his and her white china basins.

Meanwhile, the first floor opens itself up for perfect guest accommodation with a spacious bedroom and its own ensuite, along with an additional bedroom.

The ground floor also features an activity room that extends out to the plunge pool and alfresco area for its homeowners to enjoy.
