Green is definitely the flavor of the day here on Decoist. From fabulous sunrooms filled with indoor plants we move on to a dashing Green House in Melbourne that steals the show with its exceptional love for nature and an equally ingenious design.
Brought in to radically alter the damp and dark interior of this classic home Glen Thomas Architecture turned to a contemporary extension with a distinct 9-meter long glass roof to get the job done.
The large house was designed keeping in mind the specific needs of its owners. With multiple bedrooms open gathering spaces and delightful social zones this is a place where friends and family can come together with ease.
A ground source heat pump and a wood-fired boiler provide additional heating in the winter months while the smart system of shades ensure that there is absolutely no necessity of air conditioning in the summer months. Essentially this is a farmhouse that cuts back on power consumption and aims to reduce its carbon footprint as much as possible.
The true highlight of the office though is the stunning events space at its heart which is integrated with the stairway and offers informal tiered seating. It is this box-style events area that hosts most of the meetings presentations and interactive sessions and is complete with IT and AV functionality. Creative efficient and built on a limited budget this Melbourne office captivates in more ways than one.
