The idea of adaptive reuse and a trendy blend of the old and the new has resulted in homeowners increasingly opting for smart additions instead of dismantling existing homes in favor of new structures. Located in Elsternwick a beautiful little suburb of Melbourne this traditional house is one of many Victorian houses that are taking the path of extensions and renovations
Spread across three different floors and designed by Studio Arthur Casas the lavish home combines sleek contemporary style with strong native design touches to shape a truly exceptional and comfy retreat in the heart of Rio.
While this might seem like an odd idea the result is the creation of a spectacular home that is engulfed in a cloak of natural greenery and filled with passageways and a series of dynamic volumes. This brilliant interaction between the landscape and the interior sets the tone for the house and its unique style.
The showstopper of the house is a beautiful kitchen and dining space with rustic chic style and the wonderful use of pendant lights. Exposed wooden ceiling beams open wooden cabinets a beautiful kitchen counter and unique dining table chairs steal the show here
Some of the unique features and eccentric decor inside the home include Bentley leather stitched furniture a a 16-car garage that is connected to an amazing home bar a 24-seat home theater and a dedicated wine cellar. That obviously is only the tip of the iceberg and the majestic mansion offers you pretty much everything that you can dream of. Obviously we expect some hot Hollywood star or icon from the sports world to make this mansion their own.
