Set on the idyllic Sunshine Coast of Queensland and on the edge of the protected Noosa National Park the is a place where the landscape becomes the most defining feature of the interior. Designed by James Russell Architect the house is more like a series of vast pavilions expansive verandas and lovely courtyards that are carefully covered and protected using a large shade cloth.
Designed by architect Cristián Izquierdo this remarkable House in Morrillos Chile is made entirely in pinewood. In a seasonal cabin constructed to accommodate up to three couples the exposed expansive pinewood offers a clean verging on sterile environment. And yet the result is both inviting and engaging.
Concrete is the material off choice on the inside with the three inimitable curved ceiling structures in raw concrete standing in contrast to the polished concrete floor. The repetitive concrete ‘vaults’ capture the Northern sunlight beautifully and fill the interior with bright daylight.
Overlooking the park outside and disconnecting with the landscape when necessary the house offers best of both worlds. A curated art collection and comfy modern décor complete this Kansas City home where life feels breezy and beautiful!
It is the wooden balcony and the stained cedar-clad walls on the upper level that give a certain amount of contrast to an otherwise monochromatic street façade. Keeping out noise and unnecessary intrusions the basement home office towards the south corner of the house lets the homeowners work in peace.
