Simplicity and minimalism ensure that the home feels uncluttered and organized. Traditional elements of vernacular design are carefully combined with new-age ergonomics to give the homeowners a functional and serene escape.
Sitting next to a wetland and a golf course the exterior of this home designed by Auhaus Architecture is draped in raw concrete and natural hardwood. Despite the presence of the large glass windows and sliding walls it is the concrete structure that holds all your attention.
Cozy creative and contemporary this Norwegian home adapts a style that preserves and enhances Scandinavian design without sacrificing modernity and functionality.
On the lower level a neutral color scheme metallic accents a smart staircase connecting it to the bedrooms above and a rejuvenated kitchen and dining area set the mood. Opening up into the lovely backyard the breezy indoor-outdoor interplay of the Brunswick House puts a smile on your face.
The existing house was more than 100 years old and that meant that much of the revamp needed to happen in the rear living the street facade largely untouched. Then there are the constraints of space with most of these Aussie homes having a long narrow silhouette.
Instead of polishing the rough and imperfect finishes of concrete the homeowners wanted to leave the little ‘imperfections’ intact. Next to the concrete surfaces is natural hardwood; a surface that brings warmth and elegance to the façade and the interior.
Timber panes posts and finishes lend warmth while creating a fluid and adaptable living environment. Unabated views of the park outside are balanced with necessary privacy even as a splendid yard and relaxing pool complete the residence.
There is beauty in simplicity. This is especially true in case of home design and decorating. Instead of spending endless hours on complicated form and flowery overtones one can achieve an equally impressive result by sticking to the basics. Do not believe us?
