About the project
Nestled in a private gully and designed in conjunction with the neighbouring site, 26 Grays Road responds to the unique site features whilst achieving private views and capturing the prevailing breeze and daylight.
The architectural language and contribution to the neighbouring context is resolved with a strong sense of place and design rigour. Shaped by subtropical design principles, the three levels are articulated as shifting planes, connected by open site lines and pierced by a central light filled void.
“…we sought to embrace the unique features of the site – the gully, the trees, the landscape and the location – to deliver a responsive form.”
— Conrad Gargett Director, John Flynn.
The interior architecture considers an opulent lived experience and elevated daily rituals, providing generous spaces to rest, restore, work, play and connect with family and friends. The modernist inspired planning presents clean lines and clear visual connections between spaces. A strong horizontal axis is emphasised throughout and supported by carefully selected natural finishes that share linear characteristics. Sandstone floors, exposed concrete, walnut timber and travertine are offset by a striking marble kitchen island positioned under the void announcing the heart of the home.
Central to the interior is the void, flooding shared spaces and connected rooms with light. Generous planters punctuate each level providing animated light and shade. The expansive balconies and building edges are softened with subtropical planning, providing residents with a landscaped connection to the gully beyond.
The home features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two powder rooms, nine car garage, pool, gym, bar, cellar and gathering spaces to meet every occasion.
