The light, aesthetic, natural surrounds and the stories that are special to us are interwoven into the fabric of our homes and our lives. From busy streets, cosmopolitan city lights, to the surrounds of nature, the places we live shape our feelings, a home can influence the way you feel.
The syme.home is an emotive home. Designed with an uncomplicated and organic aesthetic, immersed in light and nature, one’s emotional response is immediate. You will feel yourself lift as you admire the space, the flow and the beautiful complementary design with emphasis on connectedness with the outdoors.
A simple expression of the love for the site, the ecology and surrounding environment, the home’s view across the elevated inner north position offers a spectacular vista for all seasons. The play on colour inside and out is enhanced as the sun crosses the sky. The patchwork of organic tones are uplifting and revitalising, the warmth and texture of the natural materials used in the construction complement the surrounds and match the environmental ecological considerations of the design of the home
A solar passive design realised by university academics in the 1960s, the understated organic and modernist design reveals a unique home that conjures a feeling of functionality and offers generous space to live and enjoy. Truly remarkable as a forward thinking, environmentally conscious design, In partnership with their Scandinavian builders, it treads lightly and adopts solar and water efficiencies.
Areas for living and dining are interchangeable, the vaulted ceilings add to the sense of space. Four bedrooms and study, family bathroom and en-suite provide adequate and generous family living. A studio walled in glass a beautiful space to be reimagined as a work from home, business or artist working space. A full length carport capable of sheltering two cars. The syme.home is a modest, clever, functional design in harmony with its surrounds.
