Characterised by its L-shaped formation beyond the distinctly mckimm facade, the Fourth Residence was conceived and constructed with the flow of the space and key zoning front of mind. A significant fall on the site allowed the Fourth Residence to offer a journey of tiers, levels and layers, all experienced within the different volumes of the home.
Through the front door, the impact of the Fourth Residence is immediate. A double-height glass void immerses the entry in natural light, with the infinity-edge pool and large garden area becoming an instant focal point.
The clients’ five rescue dogs were a major consideration in the design from the outset. Favouring a neutral, darker palette, the Fourth house is layered with textural, tactile and minimalist finishes that provide a practical, functional arrangement. Detailing using the intrinsic rawness of glass, concrete and timber are carried throughout the home.
Achieving the perfect blend of lifestyle, luxury and functionality, this award-winning home is only metres from the beach and emphasises a strong connection to its outdoor spaces. The key to the brief for the Fourth house was to create a home that could be equally enjoyed by both humans and animals.
