The from the Australian designers Robinson Architects seems to the kind of house that proves just how great you can use glass steel and wood when decorating your interior. This two storey modern house is located on Sunshine Coast near Queensland and was meant for a retired couple but to be honest I could see myself or any other young fellows living in there just as great.
Main living room is flanked by magnificent sitting room and a spacious dining room. The house is crammed with a range of spectacular furniture carved out of teak and expensive imported woods. You would see spectacularly designed artistic furniture cushions and tables right from the living room to the most oblivious kitchen.
Supported by a steel and concrete skin the interior volumes containing the living and resting spaces can be rearranged by adding or removing rooms. By using locally sourced lark timber to dress up the facade the architects embedded the modern architecture into the surrounding landscape.
Alexander Brenner Architects designed an interesting residential construction in which two villas share the same facade. Each of the constructions has their own floor plan and atmosphere. The only things connecting them are the shared front facade and staircase.
Moreover wood acts like an air conditioner and essentially maintains a cool atmosphere inside the house all round the year. All rooms are cross ventilated and utilize coastal breeze from the nearby ocean. The site is really calm and tranquil which is indispensable for elder ones. Automated windows provide enough privacy and there are provisions for rain water harvesting. The house is designed with an eye to utilize as much daylight as possible to minimize the power bill.
Besides the private spaces the common living and entertaining zones gather the family together in a carefully designed atmosphere. Overlooking agricultural fields in the backside the house was created to protect the inhabitants’ privacy while offering them private views over the quiet relaxing surroundings.
The Hasharon House is one of Sharon Neuman Architects‘ projects – a modern residence located in Israel. Spreading over 2200 square foot the Hasharon House is home to a young family and their three children so all the interior and exterior spaces were designed to mirror this and offer each inhabitant personal spaces they can enjoy.
