The interior design and landscape will always create a truly great home. This contemporary house designed by Robert Mills Architects, called Verdant Avenue, located in Melbourne, Australia. A crisp cubic structure allows the property’s 80 year old pin oak to be celebrated as the focal point for the main living, dining and bedroom areas.
Verdant Avenue perfectly showcases the modern RMA aesthetic – form, function and detail alongside nature at its finest. This example of sustainable architecture dispels the myth that being sustainable requires the sacrifice of glamour, luxury and pleasure.
The Verdant Avenue House uses smart lighting system and motorized oversize exterior window louvers to make use of the natural light and provide a better ventilation. The interior and exterior living and entertaining spaces sit side by side on the ground level, separated by floor to ceiling glass walls and sliding doors. These doors open to a 25 metre lap pool, which runs the length of the building and provides natural evaporative cooling to the living areas.
