Final yr Jo featured Sydney-based architect Daniel Boddam and spoke of his signature fashion: thought of simplicity. I wished to share one other instance of that strategy with this lovely fashionable house in Mosman, NSW. Contemplating structure and interiors as one, Villa Carlo is a holistic, modern interpretation of the Californian bungalow – embodying my signature thought of simplicity, drawing focus to artisanal craft and the purchasers’ coveted assortment of artwork. Being a semi-detached dwelling, I sought to create a dialogue with its neighbouring counterpart; a white rendered brick house that was as soon as extra akin to a conventional bungalow. Key touchpoints create a thought of spatial journey, ranging from the customized brass pull to the entry door. A splice within the constructing envelope introduces a sliver of sunshine the place ascending meets descending; a refined and poetic gesture inviting a spirited interaction of shadow and light-weight all through the day. Villa Carlo is holistically designed with architectural and inside particulars forming a constant and harmonious dialogue – the macro is within the micro. As patrons of the humanities, the inventive curiosity of our purchasers is mirrored within the spirit of the home, which confidently interweaves artwork, residing areas, gentle and nature; an everlasting and poetic final result.
