Contemporary Balmoral House in Green Australian Paradise

Balmoral House by Fox Johnston Architects is a contemporary home tucked in the hills of a Sydney suburb called Mosman. Designed to separate different areas from each other by levels, the metal clad angular structure provides each zone with required privacy and comfort.

Its two-toned architecture makes for a stylish and attractive look. And to make it a dream home, the architects completed it with a swimming pool and a green yard, that corresponds beautifully with the green locale.

To make the most of the views, the living and dining rooms were located on the upper levels. This gave the rooms’ wall-sized windows a live mural look. Even transitional spaces in the house are open to those gorgeous vistas outside.

The sleeping quarters and bathrooms kept in a privacy of a fenced yard have their fair share of daylight and views, although more casual and homely.

All the wall-sized windows as well as the entrances feature curtains to control the amount of light, and provide with privacy when necessary. The kitchen additionally features shutters.

Just like the architecture itself, the house interiors are sleek and contemporary with occasional elements echoing the white brick exterior and mid-century modern style. Wooden flooring is reserved for the upper floors, where the home atmosphere is more physically contained.

Surrounded by the neighboring homes, the house architecture provides nooks and private spots for the residents to relax at, including a dining room outdoor deck, a roof mezzanine, and an inner yard.
