Today we meet Visie Properties director and Visie World Homes founder Warren Swanston, the developer of an incredible boutique building called ‘Obsidian’ in Brisbane’s Teneriffe.
Join Anna and Warren on this video tour through the penthouse of this amazing property to see what hides behind the building’s unique façade!
The unconventional building draws upon two different sources of inspiration which combine to create a beautiful piece of art, that also recognises the interesting history of the area.
“I was inspired by circular shapes that I saw in a magazine, they had a café that was set out in these huge stormwater pipes with seats set up inside,” explains Warren.
Check out the video to hear what this house has in common with submarines!
This one-of-a-kind property has just the right amount of ‘wow-factor’, without being over the top. The astonishing design cleverly fuses all the beautiful materials with stunning details and perfect functionality.
All the bedrooms open up to the sweeping veranda, making the generous rooms feel even more spacious.
The amazing master suite features a walk-in robe and a fantastic ensuite with an unbelievable monsoon shower that can also be used as a steam room – yes please!
The massive kitchen is not only equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, but also aesthetically pleasing with its ‘industrial yet elegant’ ambience.
The open plan kitchen/dining/living area is huge as it is, but it can also be completely opened up onto the veranda with the bi-fold doors, providing the perfect setting for entertaining your guests!
Obsidian is the product of seamless team work between the developer, Warren, and the architect, Elizabeth Anderson of the award-winning architects Hayes Anderson Lynch.
“We’ve done a few projects together and we work really well together,” says Warren.
To finish up today’s tour, check out the video to see what our Anna brought as a gift for Warren today. A little hint – it’s mystical, it’s fragrant, and it’s burrrrrning hot!
If you want a closer look at this magnificent penthouse, then you’re in luck, as an open home viewing is scheduled for this Sunday at 11am!
