A balance between the warm and austere

Custom built by Coast Homes, this practical family abode is rich in texture.

Showcasing the builder’s design nous, the home, named The Zuri, belongs to Coast Homes General Manager Dean Harris and his partner and Project Interior Designer Anni.

Speaking to New Homes, the couple said their abode was inspired by the cubism design movement and featured clean, bold lines.

“We wanted to create a home with a modern minimalist style,” Mr Harris said.

“Working within a footprint of just 286sqm, the home embraces as much natural light as possible.”

A distinctive feature of the build is the front elevation that features a cantilevered second floor with large framed glass windows.

“The front facade was the first part of the home to be discussed during the design brief,” Mr Harris said.

“Maintaining a balanced, low-profile elevation was important. The designer had to work hard to develop a structure that could fit in the small space.”

Distinguished by clean lines and geometric shapes, the couple decided to introduce warm, earthy tones and textures to make the home feel inviting.

“Anni wanted to work with a warm and grounding colour palette to offset the austere cubist elements,” Mr Harris said.

The couple decided to pair corten-look tiles with a large statement cedar door, which was complemented by the render colour.

“This is my favourite aspect of the elevation,” Ms Harris said. “I love the relationship and harmony between the materials and colours.”

Inside the home a wide, open floor plan with an east facing central courtyard fills the home with natural light and accentuates the overall sense of space.

“We designed an east-facing, central courtyard to create open visual lines of sight and a sense of spaciousness and light throughout the home,” Ms Harris said.

Catering to the needs of the Harris family, the home contains three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Split over two levels, the bedrooms are all located on the upper level, while the main living areas reside towards the rear of the property and seamlessly connect to the outdoors.

“We wanted a space where we could spend the afternoons watching the boys play, whilst maintaining a direct visual connection to the home,” Ms Harris said.

The minimalist design brief was followed through to the kitchen, which boasts a dark colour palette and sophisticated cabinetry.

“I love dark kitchens,” Ms Harris said. “The colours and textures help make the space feel bold and calm.”

Innovative and sleek, the couple opted to use a CleanTouch laminate, which is resistant to light scratches and fingerprints.

Located at 46B Buntine Road in Wembley Downs, the home is open for viewing for a limited time only.

The home is open Wednesdays from 2-5pm, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 1-5pm or by appointment.
