The words ‘display home’ don’t ordinarily conjure up images of luxury in our minds. That is, until we were introduced to Canny, an award-winning Melbourne studio specialising in the design and construction of premium homes. Amongst a portfolio of impressive examples of contemporary architecture, the Brighton Concept Home stands out for its sleek, minimalist facade and functional layout.
From the moment you arrive at the imposing property in the seaside suburb of Brighton, an electronic gate leads you to the manicured landscaping and welcomes you inside. A pivot doorway sets the tone for the rest of the property as a highly detailed, modern design. A free-flowing layout on the ground floor forms the heart of the home and offers generous communal spaces to enjoy. The living, dining and kitchen areas are orientated towards a sun-drenched courtyard and benefit from an abundance of natural light. Taking pride atop a stunning marble hearth and within custom timber joinery is a remote-controlled fireplace that is both an eye-catching focal point and a handy addition for chilly Melbourne nights. Fresh white walls are contrasted by the deep hued kitchen and black features within for a distinctly crisp aesthetic.
Pre-designed by Canny’s in-house architectural studio, the Brighton Concept Home’s spacious layout is imagined as the ideal configuration for modern families. Upstairs, four bedrooms including a massive master suite benefit from pure wool carpets as standard. As a matter of fact, all the premium fittings and fixtures displayed within the home are included, from European appliances to marble bench tops and soaring three-metre ceilings with huge windows. The best part about a Canny home is that it’s customisable. While the Brighton Concept Home is an excellent example of spatial planning and material expression, it’s possible to alter the layout and finishes to suit your lifestyle and personal taste.
As well as providing a luxurious home with all the modern conveniences you could ask for, Canny has committed to a sustainable approach when it comes to building. The Brighton Concept Home has achieved a six-star energy rating by employing double-glazing, external wall insulations, a solar hot water system, and energy efficient heating and cooling systems. This forward-thinking sets Canny apart as a leading luxury home builder and guarantees the longevity of its projects.
The Brighton Concept Home by Canny is a display home, but not as you know it. It’s a striking example of when functional design, sustainability and luxurious finishing touches meet to form a new way of living.
