Design Intent

The owners of the Foote residence had inhabited the existing dwelling at the address and desired to create a larger, more contemporary home for their young family. From the street, the Foote portrays a multi-layered facade that sits comfortably on a flat site.

The pool is the centrepiece of the design with the structure of the house sitting around its perimeter in a u-shape formation. The luxury of a northern orientation floods the open plan living spaces with natural light, including the underground basement where light funnels through via a landscaped glass atrium that falls from the main entrance.


The carefully considered lines of the home centralise the living areas offering an introspective aspect and a feeling of intimacy. Finishes such as concrete, feature brickwork and timber have been layered throughout the Foote, creating a different textural experience at every turn. Modern design and contemporary styling give character to the home and exude intimacy, despite its scale and vast proportions.


Detailing and spatial design take on a life of their own at the Foote and encourage a sense of calm within the restrained colour palette favoured by the clients. Combining a comfortable lifestyle and an aesthetically harmonious environment, the Foote residence is a contemporary home designed to offer enjoyment, intimacy and connectivity to family and friends.
