The was conceptualized and brought to life by Zen Architects and it does indeed feel like a place of ‘Zen’! This amazing Aussie home features a brilliant garden and a stunning cloak of green even as its striking two story structure welcomes in plenty of natural light.
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.
It is the top floor that holds the adult bedrooms which sit on the edge while kids’ bedrooms and bunk rooms occupy the space in the middle. These bunk rooms can also be used as additional adult bedrooms whenever needed giving the home an adaptable sheen. Concrete and hardwood timber shape this relaxing and ingenious Aussie home where green is in!
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.
Since the couple worked from home incorporating a full-fledged home office that offered privacy and smart functionality was another important part of the home’s design. Built on a tight budget by KEM STUDIO the inviting house uses a white and wood color palette to usher in a sense of harmony even while inviting the outdoors inside.
