A stainless steel mesh gate and screen make for a protective entrance. Those lucky enough to live here walk past it to find a heavenly modern home with social spaces opening towards a stunning lap pool lined with greenery. The fabulous House on Princess of Wales Road was designed by Hyla Architects as a highly detailed home customized for the family of four living here. This modern home, formerly a semi-detached house turned into a bungalow, is now a highly contemporary place to live a modern lifestyle. Imagine yourself coming home from work to find you can indulge in a well-deserved lap session and sunbathing afternoon in the courtyard.

Then heading up to the marvelous master bedroom via a cantilevered Patagonian Walnut timber staircase looking down to the pool deck below. This heavenly resting space showcases a rainforest tree in the middle, making your evening routine the most coveted event of the day. Architects knew how to create a soothing feeling throguhout: “ A unique spiral staircase connects the master bedroom to the study above. Here, the shelves are inspired by the shape of the Ligne Roset sofas. The kids rooms are custom designed to the children’s own brief as are their bathrooms.” In the boy’s room, a custom designed bookshelf steals the design show, while the girl’s room provides a cheery atmosphere via pink nuances. Even the guest bathroom provides a visual delight of glass mosaic tiles under a circular skylight.

Take a careful look at the photos, they’re filled with amazing details. We’d love to know which design element was your favorite: was it the spiral staircase? Or the sleek and masculine boy’s bathroom design?
