Modern ECO Tallis Drive Property by COS Design, Melbourne 1

This Modern ECO Mornington Peninsula property, a “work in progress” from COS Design, begins with a welcoming shady garden area at the front entrance. A casual stone bench invites you to sit and relax amid palms and native grasses; natural stone extends to the driveway, ending in a brick-red garage door that brightens the front courtyard. Follow the stone walkway to the back yard and you’re treated to a covered al fresco dining area, complete with fire pit. This home is built on neutrals: featuring what COS call “rammed earth” as the structure’s backbone, the palette also includes matte black, mortar gray, and woodland gray panels that blend the exterior with its environment — and continue in the interior of the house. Pale wood paneling offsets grays, charcoals, and browns in the master bedroom; light comes from charcoal-and-white lamps and a narrow rectangular window at easy eye level.

The bathroom is a study in minimalist luxury: a deep tub, a shower with almost invisible glass doors, and twin “floating” sinks in stylized triangular shapes, accented with lime-green accessories. A home office sports a plump pale yellow couch; living and kitchen areas are warmed with bright red in the chandelier lighting, accent chairs, and a reflecting wall behind the stove and counters. Entertaining is easy with an eat-in kitchen island plus a dining table and chairs set against a wall of glass; a tucked-away fireplace and TV face an expansive, pillowed couch. Finally, you’ll find little surprises: a mini work area in one corner of the kitchen, and a small sitting area not far from the entrance of the home — complete with guitar. As COS puts it, the house fits its owners “to a tee” — but is only the beginning of Tallis Drive’s transformation, as additional landscaping work is due to follow.
