It is unquestionable that almost every home across the world is heavily influenced by vernacular design as much as it is by global trends. Local factors shaping homes makes plenty of sense as they are generally shaped by the climatic conditions of the region and materials that are easily available in that part of the world. But borrowing a certain style from an iconic building nearby is far less frequent and that is what one gest with the inventive A Goodwood House designed by RAD-Studio in Adelaide. The house is inspired by the heritage-listed Capri Theater just around the corner and embraces its many gorgeous art-deco influences.
From elegant to custom décor pieces, the house adds art-décor touches to a backdrop that is otherwise significantly contemporary. Color scheme inside the house is largely neutral and entrenched in white with wood and stone creating both textural and visual contrast. Different geometric forms are intertwined in a fluid manner with one room flowing into the next. There is no shortage of space in here with the large house flowing in the backyard and extending the living areas outdoors.
Beyond wood and white, one sees an influx of dark gray and black cabinets in both the kitchen and the bedrooms while the bathroom greets you with a custom pickle-green, tiled backdrop. Sloped ceilings, ample natural ventilation and bespoke furniture that combines storage options with comfortable seating complete this modern Aussie home laced with subtle art-deco flavor.
