26 Grays Road
Traditional custodians of the land:
Yuggera and Turrbal people
Nestled in a private gully and designed in conjunction with the neighbouring site, 26 Grays Road responds to the unique site features while maximising views and the prevailing breeze and daylight.
The architectural language and contribution to the neighbouring context is resolved with a strong sense of place and design rigour. Shaped by subtropical design principles, the three levels are articulated as shifting planes, connected by open site lines and pierced by a central light-filled void.
The interior architecture considers an opulent lived experience and elevated daily rituals, providing generous spaces to rest, restore, work, play and connect with family and friends. The modernist-inspired planning presents clean lines and clear visual connections between spaces. A strong horizontal axis is emphasised throughout and supported by carefully selected natural finishes that share linear characteristics. Sandstone floors, exposed concrete, walnut timber and travertine are offset by a striking marble kitchen island positioned under the void, defining the heart of the home.
Central to the interior is the void, flooding shared spaces and connected rooms with natural light. Generous planters punctuate each level providing animated light and shade. The expansive balconies and building edges are softened with subtropical planning, providing residents with a landscaped connection to the gully beyond.
