Overlooking the port Philip Bay area the home designed by Maddison Architects is an amalgamation of two distinct structures into one. The idea is to bring together a south and a north facing facade with simple and elegant design. While this gives the house a unique look it also helps in terms of energy management and ventilation a great deal.
Some of the visibly distinct and fascinating features of the home include the generous use of glass its U-shaped structure that links two separate properties using a common entrance and a cool driveway a refreshing pool that offers a wonderful textural contrast to the surrounding glass and stone flowing an spacious interiors clad in simple neutral shades clean and refined lines simple and minimalist décor and a lighting scheme that brings out the best features of the building.
The designed by John Wardle Architects on a sheep farm on North Bruny Island in Tasmania Australia might not be about minimalist design or ultra-sleek interiors but it sure garners some attention with its impressive renovation and warm wooden interiors.
It is truly amazing the way most modern home owners are now as much concerned about the views that their home offers as they are of the interiors and the décor. That definitely seems to be the growing trend as designers and architect houses are being asked to create structures that specifically take into account the surroundings and ensure that the blend into the natural setting seamlessly while offering unabated view of the natural habitat. The owners of this have in fact waited several years to obtain the right piece of land that will offer them stunning views of Mt. Asama.
This stylish and warm apartment conceived by Fertility Design creates a flowing work space that is integrated with the rest of the house visually and yet can provide solitude and silence when needed. The designers achieved this by using retractable glass walls that separate the home office area from the living space.
