The alfresco area has taken over as the
centra l hub fo r family get-togethers and laz y
afternoons, thanks in part to the integration
of kitchen amen ities within its design . This
pa rtially enclosed alfresco in City Beach
is a perfect example, co ntaining all the
equipmen t required to cook up an ou tdoo r
feast – including a barbecu e. There’s also
a sink for washing, exte nsive sto rage
un derneath the main be nchtop an d, if mo re
space is required, an indo or kitchen that is
less than a step away. The main a lfresco
is co n nected to the kitchen via a lon g
ben chtop, which leads from inside all the way
to the end of the outdoo r a lfresco, while large
glass windows help blu r the two areas together.
This home is in the running for a 2015
Australian I nstitute of Architects Award.

Make a statement in your bathroom with a freestanding bathtub and tap. This
bathroom’s drawcard – the stand-alone – is reminiscent of old 18th and 19th
century clawfoot-style baths, but has a distinct modern edge with its smooth curves
and white porcelain finish. A brass tap accompanies the tub, creating a sense of
grandeur for the bather – the metal finish will age over time for a natural, rustic
appeal. Both tap and bathtub work well against the organic stone feature wall,
and stand bold against the black and white chevron tiles that lay beneath them.
