SALO sets itself apart from the typical inner Canberra streetscape but also sits politely among its neighbors. A bold monumental facade with subtle combination of concrete, brick, and paneling to create texture and form. The entry is articulated by an open courtyard with a curved concrete wall adjacent to a large water feature.
Inside, the home is defined by three subtle level changes to suit the topography. The lower level accommodates the master bed suite and formal lounge room. The mid-level includes the living, dining, kitchen space that flows out to the terrace and yard and pool area. The upper level accommodates the kids rooms and associated spaces. The internal materials palette boasts a sublime blend of natural stone and terrazzo inspired by mid-century / palm springs design and obsessive detailing.
