Lan Yue ge is a soft line Contemporary home which takes full advantage of its extensive Central Coast Ocean views over Lion Island to Pittwater.
Rustic Touch used elegant lines and Chinese influence when designing this home. The use of solar passive design was complex due to the spectacular southern views.
Lan Yue ge meaning ‘Water front home that sees moon light first’. The design is simple, with the shape and layout drawing you through to the water view. Two sets of bi-fold doors lead you from the open plan Lounge through to the southern tiled patio. The open pergola has LED down lights recessed in to Recycled Hardwood beams creating a stunning evening ambiance.
On the northern side of the open plan Kitchen is a hardwood timber deck covered by a ‘Vergola’ with a bulkhead surround housing LED down lights.
The court yard is designed with the use of Chinese philosophy using, plants, stone, water and architecture to create the ambience of peace and warmth, though used in a more contemporary manor. The focus is still drawn to the view through large stacker glass doors leading into the hallway and kitchen, giving the ability to invite the outside in.
With the simple lines and uncomplicated lay out, Rustic Touch was able to meet all their clients’ requirement and more.
The home was a pleasure to design and build and the reward is the confident presence this home has, in the environment in which it sits.
