Photo gallery showcases Daniel Lomma Design's modern urban masterpiece home called "The Derby House" with spectacular indoor and outdoor spaces.
This gallery features a brilliant new modern home in Derby, Australia, by Daniel Lomma Design.
This home features a bold modern facade, dominated by the vertiginous double story stairwell window and stone clad feature wall on left, with the aluca bond cladding beneath a mono-pitched roof on the right half.
The truly memorable two story stairwell visible through the full height window features a bookcase climbing from lower floor to the top ceiling. The open design, steel and wood staircase allows for natural lighting through the large window to make its way throughout the home.
The central courtyard, seen through sliding door and full height glass windows, offers an evocative background for the surrounding living areas. Featuring a lengthy pool with built-in fountain jets, this outer space provides gorgeous views for the upper and lower patios.
The second floor master bedroom opens to the private balcony overlooking the pool area, while a fully equipped patio with grill and dining appointments rests below.
The entire structure encapsulates a series of interlocking pieces with transparent and perforated views to other layers within and without. The unique design blurs the line between indoor and outdoor spaces for a striking visual feel throughout.
The front facade, as seen from street side, folds multiple textures and layers of glass into one view, set back behind a low slung brick and wrought iron fence. Two story window in stone clad corner showcases the large central staircase.
Living room shares a large central open space with dining and kitchen areas, opening up through sliding doors and full height windows to the patio and pool to the right. Sprawling beige and brown sectional defines the room.
Close view of the dining table reveals an intriguing arched creation, a single white slab forming the legs and surface. Kitchen stands behind under drop-ceiling in all-white as well.
A trio of transparent bar style chairs line up at the large glossy-white island with built-in sink in this kitchen, outfitted with a broad swath of white cabinetry and backsplash with metallic hardware.
Low view over the dining table highlights horizontal slit window, one of several offering natural lighting throughout the main interior space.
