Renowned for building homes of exceptional craftsmanship Pirone Builders were engaged to construct the John Collier designed home. The distinctive “C” shape helped to answer the client brief by separating living zones with a central courtyard containing alfresco kitchen, a sparkling pool and of course the spectacular Jacaranda, that became so central to the design of the home that the grandchildren dubbed it The Tree House.
The couple had high expectations for a sophisticated home and provided an extensive and detailed brief of requirements. They requested a modern, elegant “pad” for the couple to enjoy with a separate wing for visiting children, along with extensive indoor and outdoor living spaces for the family to all enjoy together. But what eventuated to be the design inspiration for many features of the home, was the preservation of a beautiful mature Jacaranda tree that graced the property.
Pirone Builders worked closely with architects and structural engineers on the steel work that is featured extensively throughout the sculptural forms of the home. The Tree House required low pitched rooves, high ceilings, and large, column-free spans to maximize volumes within height restrictions. Louvred shading required light and strong support systems. Sculptural forms are illuminated by striking night lighting, and an array of internal and external lighting solutions contributes to the enjoyment of the home.
A strong appreciation of the Jacaranda tree generated a multitude of ideas for the home. Variations in timber graining, differing textures, shadow effects and lighting sources all found their way into the new construction. The Jacaranda also inspired themes of physical and emotional comfort of the home, which is, after all, why the couple chose to move back to the suburbs.
