The brief for the Elwood house was for a modern family home that was interesting and exciting but not to the detriment of the comfort to the occupants and within a sensible budget. The client wanted a house that was clean, distinctive and enjoyable to use without feeling like they were an object in their own home purely because it was of a contemporary design. The ground floor is designed around an internal courtyard and includes two separate living rooms, kitchen, walk-in-pantry, dining room, laundry and guest bedroom. The upper floor houses the master bedroom with ensuite & walk-in-robe, 2 additional bedrooms, bathroom, rumpus room & study. A detached studio is built above the rear accessed garage which can be used as a home office or private guest suite.
