Welcome to a family home where modern design still leaves room for coziness and warmth. Envisioned by Bower Architecture, a practice of young architects from Melbourne, Australia, the Caufield Residence displays a good sense of symmetry, elegance and cutting-edge amenities. Spotted on Desire to Inspire, the project accommodates multiple living zones, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a garage, plus a north-facing courtyard with swimming pool for relaxation.
It is fun to observe the contrast between the sober concrete fence and facade overlooking the street and the opposite side of the house, defined by openness. Wood is an element that can be found throughout, ensuring an elegant exterior and adding warmth in every room. The focal point of the residence is the social area, characterized by light and space. Floor to ceiling sliding doors connect it to a wooden terrace and to the backyard with the swimming pool. Enjoy the virtual tour below and tell us what you think!
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
