Spring Road Residence-Canny Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

This Lubelso built residence is a contemporary home infused with natural light, designed by Canny Architecture, located in Malvern, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Ideally positioned near a primary school and beautiful park, the homeowners wanted the house to match the area. The 5,920 square foot (550 square meters) four bedroom home features an easy flow between living areas and a dissolved separation of the interior and exterior. The backyard of the property offers a cantilevered roof that overlooks a meticulous landscaping and a swimming pool as well as an outdoor entertaining space. The design of the home features distinctive elegant lines and a strong modern facade, adapted and refined to fit into the neighborhood. The homeowner’s top priority was to have a home they could entertain in, “with adaptable living spaces,  generous transitions and a natural synergy between indoor and outdoor spaces.” This two story residence is luxury family living at its finest, with a clean, minimalist design aesthetic and close attention to detail.

This spectacular residence was winner of the 2012 HIA Victorian Project Home of the Year and 2013 HIA Australian Project Home of the Year.

The interiors of the spacious home is brimming with natural light and elegant lines, with high ceilings and floor to ceiling glass walls and doors that adds to the sense of space, light and luxurious feel of the home. The lower level offers three spacious living zones with an open plan concept and great flow. The living areas also spill out onto the sumptous outdoor spaces, which includes a beautiful pond oasis draped in lush greenery and outdoor entertaining spaces that leads to the sparkling pool. “Creating a sense of space and tranquillity was an important factor in this home and one that influenced the design direction.”

“Contrasting black and white in simple linear styles, with timber tones for warmth, adds to the calm, elegant atmosphere.” The fabulous gas fireplace is the main focal point to the open plan living room. With a concrete hearth extended across the room, it is the perfect spot for entertaining guests to kick back, relax and enjoy the warmth with a glass of wine.

” The American oak flooring’s rich tones warm the home and in the main bathroom, the Basaltina slabs lining the walls are full height, crisply contrasting with the white bathtub.”
