Contemporary Australian Home Architecture on Yarra River-front, Melbourne

The collaboration between contemporary Australian architects Leeton Pointon and Susi Leeton, this cool home on the Yarra River in Melbourne, Australia features a flow that’s as easy to look at as it is to walk through. A tour of this riverfront home reveals floors that blend with walls; walls that become ceilings; and ceilings that open to the sky. Interiors boast warm wood ceilings and cool curving concrete and plaster walls. Every corner is naturally lit via a two-storey void. Sun-soaked interiors are finished with luxurious marble and limestone, complemented by a cultivated collection of art, furniture and trinkets that beg to be held and admired. The most notable feature of this contemporary style home is a central sculptural staircase, which connects the main floor to the upper level. An outdoor entertaining area includes a pool and a lounge area surrounding a fireplace. This contemporary house design is the recipient of an Architecture Award for Interior Architecture at the 2009 Victorian Chapter Awards. Leeton Pointon and Susi Leeton
