Smith Ekblad & Associates have been shortlisted for the Residential Architectural Property Award

Smith Ekblad & Associates have been shortlisted for the Residential Architectural Property award in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014.

Inspired by the villas of Palladio, this home conforms to the shape and terrain of the property, wrapping a broad corner and overlooking a verdant creek.  The architect incorporates the classical detailing of hand cut stone, traditional towelled stucco, an antiqued clay tile roof, hand-wrought steel window guards and light fixtures – resulting in a well-proportioned façade. IDA_SmithEkblad_Thumbnailresized

The foyer paved with marble and limestone inlaid with onyx. The floor pattern reflects the Italian cartouche outline of the opening above, mirroring the ceiling, while defining the room itself.

The library is also an irregular shape, rectangular with an apse at one end, simultaneously a challenge and an asset, which demanded heavy collaboration between the architect, interior designer and the craftspeople fabricating the custom millwork and panelling.

In the family room, the mantle is carved locally from dark putty-coloured limestone. The custom leaded glass windows draw the eye to the beautiful vaulted ceiling’s arching beams.  The architect created a unique treatment that joins walls with ceiling in curved shapes that tilt at each end.
