Victoria Road House
The clients wanted a house with a Tuscan ambience for outdoor living and informal entertaining and the challenge was to site the house to take full advantage of the Northerly sun. Landscaping of the long driveway ensured a spectacular entrance with privacy and all bedrooms were placed upstairs with a formal sitting room, kitchen, family and dining downstairs. The stair was designed with repetitive capping on the sides of the carpeted treads to form a neat edging which contrasts with the decorative wrought iron balustrade. An Italianate glass roof over the loggia provides an outdoor entertaining area catching the sun and glass doors slide into wall cavities to expand the living room into the loggia.
