For this luxurious home in Salter Point, one of the most distinctive characteristics is the open gabled roof with large stone infill walls to delineate formal and informal living areas. Internally, the rooms abound in volume and space, making the home feel grand, albeiton a domestic scale. From the architect

Mountford Architects have completed the contemporary renovation of a 1960s home in Salter Point, Western Australia. The kitchen was to become the central part of this new zone, where the clients would fulfil their love of entertaining and could also choose the covered outdoor spaces at either end of the home. The original 1960s home was to be reinvented in a modern, stylish design that flowed effortlessly from front to back, combining all living areas on one level rather than the previous two. With a deck and fire pit at the front of the completed abode, and an elevated deck and outdoor kitchen at the rear, the owners now have a selection of home entertaining locations, inside and out. Carrara stone benchtops, brushbox flooring, and travertine stone walls add practical elegance that is further raised with fittings such as magnificent floor-to-ceiling doors.
