This spectacular home was awarded the 2011 Housing Industry Association (HIA) Best Custom Home of the Year in the $475,000–$625,000 category, and it’s easy to see why. With immaculate attention to detail, a mix of natural, earthy materials and brilliant use of space, the home impresses on many levels.

Designed by Daniel Cassetai Design and built by Cicirello Homes, the home brilliantly integrates open air and light, which was a key aspect in the clients’ brief. The single-storey home in Stirling has also been designed with the everchanging needs of the growing family in mind. Working with size constraints, the objective was to achieve a spacious design with a unique streetscape.

A limestone feature blade wall and overlapping horizontal roof plains over the front entrance open to a void of light and a flow of natural limestone into the foyer, while built-in cabinetry and raised ceilings have been used to promote a feeling of spaciousness. The expanse of glazing in the kitchen, living and dining areas also provides maximum natural light. This space opens out onto, and integrates with, the alfresco area. The suspended ceiling over the outdoor living and dining areas of the alfresco also allows light and ventilation to penetrate this space.

The large indoor and outdoor living areas both have feature fireplaces, and natural stone and timber have been used in these spaces to create a warm environment suited to entertaining. The four bedrooms, two bathrooms and the study cater perfectly for a growing family, while the children’s playroom can also be used as a theatre room if the clients wish.

The design has maximised the use of the space while adhering to strict site area constraints. Clever design has ensured abundant space has been allocated to living areas, while the rear of the property has been zoned to provide separate entertaining areas, including a pool, the alfresco area, and a kids’ play area.
