Centre Stage












This gorgeous home by architect Anna Noguera is gob smacking. Don't you think. The original stone has been left on the centre stage and beautifully supported by corten steel, cement render, timber and off-form concrete.

Looking at the mix of timber and polished concrete floors, timber beams and a solid dose of simple black + white cabinetry; this place has my hand in the air waving "pick me, pick me''. This is my kind of heaven.

The materials themselves are beautiful, but the brilliant way they've been used here, like the corten skin running up the stairwell balanced with timber treads and the stunning formed bath are master strokes.

But given the field I work in, I can't help but drool over the fine construction outdoors. The original stone walled garden has been left specifically sparse, with an incredible pool sunken along the perimeter. Amazing construction.
