As the day passes and seasons wax and wane the interior changes ever so subtly because of varying natural light even as the rest of the home remains distinctly minimal and stoic. Sporadically used arm wooden surfaces gently interrupt this concrete monotony while blue accents make a rare appearance in the bedroom.
Despite the large ranch that surrounds this modern retreat the structure itself is modest and occupies just. Divided into three distinct cantilevered units the house offers a wonderful view of the green ranch even while giving those inside all the privacy they need. It is concrete and corten steel panels that shape the exterior of House N with the formers used for the lower level and on the inside.
Instead of creating rigid square rooms the living area embraces the natural contours of the home as a polygon-shape wall makes its presence felt. The sitting area and TV room at the front contains a comfy couch in black; an addition that anchors the light and breezy interior.
With the open living connected to the garden outside using large glass windows and sliding glass doors the transition between both the areas is seamless. White sheers keep out harsh direct sunlight and smart Scandinavian style décor completes this exceptional and ground-breaking Aussie home.
Designed by Pedro Ferreira Architecture Studio the gleaming interior of this 19th century house is augmented by the use of untreated pinewood. The result is wholly fresh warm and inviting.
