Whitecliffe Residence

Whitecliffe Residence

What a wonderful canvas to work with. 180 degree Port Phillip Bay views, a client willing to give Modularc the freedom to design a contemporary home with no budget constraints.

With bay views like these it was important to take advantage of them from every room. This was achieved through opening up the centre of the residence with a courtyard which can be utilized when the weather turns sour and a large void where the open tread star was located. As the client owned an Alucobond business it was a requirement to clad the majority of the dwelling with white and silver Alucobond panels.

To draw the visitor to the entry a thick stone feature wall extends through the building, along with a cantilevered cedar lined module over the entry. The visitor arrives at a white glazed automatic operated door which opens to unveil a view over the negative edge pool to the blue waters of the Bay. The use of 3.5 meter high glazing from floor to ceiling allows for an unobstructed view of the bay and skyline. Large cantilevered decks extend out protecting the glazing from the weather.

A large kitchen fit for any cook with a practical stainless steel top and surrounds to the cooking bench and a white Caesar stone bench top with water fall sides to the island bar. A walk behind butler’s pantry with wine storage and a large preparation space completes the kitchen. Drop down ceiling scape with contemporary lights suspended over the kitchen complete the modern feel.

The master bedroom features a drop down Plasma within a coffered ceiling and a balcony of its own for the parents to enjoy. An ensuite that is separated from the bedroom with a white glazed sliding screen which gives privacy or allows views from the shower or the freestanding bath.

It was a pleasure being involved in this project. It had been a gratifying experience. Since the home had been built a number of compliments have been given to Modularc. One being the use of the home for a Hollywood Block Buster Movie and its placement in abode magazine and Australia’s best beach houses.
