Open-plan generous house built by Starr Constructions


The best possible home for your budget – the right design and build company will help balance this equation for you.

Starr Constructions is a niche home and commercial construction company that achieves the right trade off for clients, helping them to achieve a prestige home along with excellent value for their budget.

This upmarket home offers a great example, says Starr Constructions' Nino Sanzari.

"The owner's brief was for a modern, flat parapet family home, which would take in the city and sea views. The tricky part for us was creating flowing interior spaces, given the steep site and creating a sense of luxury and spaciousness."

The contemporary home's stepped design is light and open with spacious rooms and plenty of glass. Bifold doors open the generous living areas to a large, sheltered outdoor area tucked under a first-floor balcony. The house connects to the outdoors on most sides while the articulated frontage brings great street presence.


To break up the long, airy living spaces, there is a feature spotted gum timber staircase with glass balustrades and also a dramatic marble television and gas fire surround.

Other features include a dedicated cinema room and a sleek master bathroom with a Forme freestanding bathtub.

"A neutral colour palette of whites, creams, and light greys accentuates the open spacious ambience," says Sanzari.

Lighting was also an important consideration in this design. Fitting the house out with downlights provided an even light which covers large areas, without disrupting the modern, understated look.
