A few years ago I visited Perth with my family and was really impressed with the overall experience. Even though this region is in a completely different time zone compared to rest of Australia and is fairly remote it has a distinct air of opulence. Ultimately this is due to the mining boom, which has attracted a lot of investment in Western Australia. Essentially this has pushed the cost of living and house prices up to near the level of Sydney. It has also meant that architects are not restricted by tight client budgets and can create supreme properties without compromise. A great example can be found in the ultra extravagant Trigg Residence.
Not surprisingly the Trigg Residence has coined its name because it is located in the prestigious suburb of Trigg, which is approximately 14 km from Perth CBD (Central Business District). This popular location is a vibrant beach resort that is frequented by surfers and boarders. The home was created by Hillam Architects in 2014 as a private sanctuary for their clients and is built on a generous 1227 square metre plot. Impressively this magnificent residence affords the owners expansive 180 degree views of the Indian Ocean.
Externally Hillam Architects have created a dramatic multi-level geometric structure, which is designed to withstand the harsh coastal conditions. I love the generous use of glass that maximizes the coastal vistas and floods light through the home. Internally Trigg Residence is a minimalistic modern masterpiece that is finished to an impeccable standard. Features like the floating staircase, custom made modular cabinetry, artistic three dimensional pendant lighting are an absolute revelation. Other amazing details include a bespoke Carrera marble kitchen, with sculptural extractor fan and sleek black limestone flooring. To complete the picture, the discerning owners have complimented the home by including beautiful artwork and the finest contemporary furniture. Outside, the property has perfectly manicured gardens, a stylish swimming pool and private decked areas.
