It’s seamless,” says Wayne. “Because of the nature of the house – with the double frontage and the reserve to the rear – everywhere you look you see out. You’re always looking through to something else.” A cohesive material and interior-design palette uses natural textures juxtaposed with industrial fittings to complement the connection the home has to its external environment. The master bedroom’s ensuite is a particularly strong example of this styling at work. The black Caroma bath is a leading element in a room that

Wayne says the home will serve as an example to visitors of Rendition Homes’ ability to be innovative and practical at the same time, whilst designing a home that suits a person’s specific needs.

Open-plan living meets an industrial aesthetic on the ground floor.

“Buying a house is an emotional thing,” he says. “It’s about creating the right feel in the home but also giving people what they want within their budget. You have to be innovative – in this market you have to be otherwise you’ll fall behind.” The home is on display in the Waterford Display Village each Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 1-5pm.

right block in Lightsview’s Waterford precinct, Vicki began working with Precision Homes to create the house to go with it. The design guidelines for homes at Lightsview are carefully thought out so that individual residents can express their own style and preferences while still building something that fits seamlessly with the rest of the suburb. Precision Homes are deeply familiar with Lightsview’s way of doing things – company owner William Moukachar built his own home there.

“I think it wasn’t until we moved into the house that I really appreciated how good the design was”

William himself worked closely with Vicki on her design, which she hoped would capture the “sophisticated and elegant but still relaxed” atmosphere of a resort she stayed in whilst visiting Phuket. The resulting two-storey, three-bedroom house has a distinctive, unique feel as soon as you walk into it. “I think it wasn’t until we moved into the house that I really appreciated how good the design was,” says Vicki.

Community harvest Lightsview residents have celebrated another successful year of growing their own fruit and vegetables with the Magic Harvest program.

Van Nguyen On his market garden block in Virginia, Van Nguyen grows a wide range of fruit and vegetables. But at the Lightsview Farm Direct Market he is particularly famous for his cocktail tomatoes, which are sweet and full of flavour. “I started growing at Virginia about four years ago,” he says. A market veteran, he is excited about finding some new customers at Lightsview. “I’ve done about three years at the Gepps Cross Market and one or two at the Parafield Market,” he says. “I’ve just started here in the last couple of months.”

The internationally-renowned program is offered to Lightsview residents for free and taught by Paula Winen of Urban Sprout. Each spring Paula takes a group of residents through the process of establishing and maintaining a vegetable patch.

This was Paula’s second year teaching the

plant seedlings there and they also take the same home and follow through the program. We tend to have five or six different sessions and we go through things like soil and pests and diseases and watering and mulching.” The new home gardeners at Lightsview have had a successful year, with several participants relaying stories of crops like lettuce and silverbeet flourishing in their courtyard gardens.

“It sits really nicely with the whole Lightsview philosophy of being a greener, more eco-friendly development with all their green space and walking paths – so it all slots in really well,” she says. Using chemical-free techniques for vegetable and fruit production, Paula and her students practice globally-recognised methods for growing food that is healthy for all.
