Description

Even a spectacular outlook can be improved by the right accessibility and architecture and this house, overlooking a harbour beach in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, is a case in point. The brief was to transform a boxy, 1950s property into a new home to permanently accommodate the client’s parents. Incorporating the Domus Advantage lift into the architectural design meant that they would future-proof the home making it safer for everyone.

Incorporating the Domus Advantage lift into the homes design meant that they would future-proof the home.

Nothing but timber

The client, influenced by grand stone English estates and houses of the Australian colonial era, also appreciated subtle Japanese influences: the warmth of timber, clean lines and a layered indoor-outdoor connection. Yet it was essential to create a relaxed and safe living environment for his parents in the spirit of a beach house.
A beautifully detailed timber staircase and timber-clad elevator (both in American oak) connect to the upper level, which enjoys panoramic views over the harbour beach while the lower-level consisting of informal and private rooms leads to the garden.
The 800mm wide x 1200mm deep lift car features monochromatic internal finishes with a light reflective palette of warm white walls, brushed aluminium trim, stainless steel accessories and a mirrored stainless steel ceiling with 3 downlights. Externally, the solid steel lift door is carefully clad with an elegant, beautifully crafted American oak finish, tying in with the staircase and joinery on both levels of the home. The timber draws inspiration from the natural environment, adding warmth.

This residence is a testament to the value of investing in the high-quality Domus Advantage lift allowing for access to all levels combined with luxury and serene simplicity.
