You know the place. Iconic palm trees, fresh air, relaxed pace, culturally rich, liveable, mild climate, year-round holiday vibe and tourist destination. We’re not talking about the elite playground of Palm Springs, California, but Geelong, Victoria. This special place is just as beautiful but infinitely more affordable and agreeable than Hollywood’s favourite escape. That’s what makes it the perfect location for the new double-storey Aria Facade by Enso Homes. Get ready to celebrate coastal living with a touch of glamour in our glittering city by the seaside.
The contemporary design is inspired by the trending mid-century modern architecture of Palm Springs and closer to home, what’s been labelled the ‘retrogression’ of places like Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast. The Aria Facade will make going home feel like a holiday, every day. The design nods to the rugged, mountainous backdrop of Palm Springs with featured stone, stark whites, pale earth-toned timbers and a noticeably neutral palette. Taking its cue from our ever–popular Selkrig Facade, the double-storey Aria is a statement and testament to airy, light-filled living. Think clean lines, bold angles and broad windows leading into uncluttered, open layouts with room for families to move.
Just last year, Geelong remained the third most popular destination for city dwellers seeking a seachange or a ‘Geechange’ as the term has been coined. Given this intel, it’s little wonder that home designs with a holiday aesthetic that ‘bring the outside in’ are in high demand. People are moving here for the cool coastal lifestyle and work/life balance, and they want the look of their home to match that intention.
Mid-century modern design, originating in the United States in the post-war period, is what inspired today’s open-concept floorplan. Doing away with the busy designs of yesterday, mid-century modern literally brought down dividing walls to create more open space for family connectedness and a sense of freedom. This feeling of spaciousness and encouragement of social interaction has endured to become a mainstay in family-friendly home design. Palm Springs is one of the best-known places in the world for its preservation of mid-century modern architecture, hence it being a source of inspiration for Enso Homes.
A double-storey facade, the Aria has also been created specifically to address the issue of land availability in the area. Bigger blocks for sale within the Greater Geelong region are rare and come with a significantly bigger price tag. This is on top of the fact local land releases are aggressively sought. But, a smaller block doesn’t have to mean less space, as double-storey designs make the most of vertical innovation and smart design. This makes the Aria ideal for knockdown and rebuild homes located on urban blocks with limited square metreage.
