For Ben Mountford of Mountford Architects, the Salter Point House project, in particular, was more of a rebuild than a renovation.

Salter Point House in Perth

The original 1960s home was to be reinvented in a modern, stylish design that flowed effortlessly from front to back, combining all living areas on one level rather than the previous two. The kitchen was to become the central part of this new zone, where the clients would fulfil their love of entertaining and could also choose the covered outdoor spaces at either end of the home.

For this luxurious home in Salter Point, one of the most distinctive characteristics is the open gabled roof with large stone infill walls to delineate formal and informal living areas.

Externally, the cantilevers in the roof at the front and back of the home were achieved with a pre-tensioned ridge beam. This created two generous eave overhangs that shade the floor-to-ceiling glazing, creating attractive back and front porches. The simple arrangement addresses the street frontage and sets up an even balance of light in the home, with views to the gardens and beyond.

Internally, the rooms abound in volume and space, making the home feel grand, albeit on a domestic scale.

Carrara stone benchtops, brushbox flooring, and travertine stone walls add practical elegance that is further raised with fittings such as magnificent floor-to-ceiling doors. With a deck and fire pit at the front of the completed abode, and an elevated deck and outdoor kitchen at the rear, the owners now have a selection of home entertaining locations, inside and out.

This new residential project required a respectful and carefully considered approach in order to integrate an addition to a building which has its own history within the iconic environment of Bondi’s Campbell Parade.
