But when Gavin Kelly moved from Australia to Seattle in the late 90s and was searching for a house in the he was unaware that the old 1960s residence he was about to buy was designed by Paul Kirk himself! With a roof that combined with its north and south side walls to create a homogenous structure this 1966 house was transformed into a modern hub a decade down the line.
Even though it is muted colors that help shape the backdrop additions like the metallic pendant in the dining space and modern wall art in the living room bring a distinct identity to the fabulous residence.
At its core this is a home that explores the possibility of a modern home melting into the landscape around it and the beautiful adobe walls stand tall at the heart of this innovative approach.
Nestled on the side of the steep hill in Queensland and overlooking the distant Gold Coast skyline and the Pacific Ocean it is the view on offer that defined the modern transformation of this Aussie home. Luxury was intertwined with smart ventilation systems to achieve a balance between comfort privacy and spectacular views!
