This residence is a bold, modernist building that has been designed in response to the client’s love of contemporary architecture and design. In order to be modelled and visualised, an existing design was brought to Aim, featuring planar elements reminiscent of architectural styles developed by Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright. Rigid geometries define internal spaces and extend outward, anchoring the building in its natural context. Internal spaces are developed to encourage open plan living in the public area of the house where living and dining areas are combined.
With Aim’s input, the design was developed and refined with the introduction of natural materials to blend with contemporary aesthetics, creating a modern yet homely sense of luxury, and bringing visual tangibility to the scheme.
