The design studio, Studio Block, strives for their work to be "enduring and uncomplicated, modern yet warm, and embracing simple luxury with playful moments."
While minimally modern in the aesthetic, this home provides a comfortable space for the occupants to immerse themselves within nature.
The narrowness of the house required the design to make effective yet frugal uses of space. Precise positioning of walls, doors, and windows were crucial as each floor was planned to serve a purpose. The first floor is a continuous public space with a living room, dining area, kitchen, and library opening to gardens in the front and back.
"The ground floor layout and kitchen have been designed for simplicity and functionality. The dark weathered zinc on the exterior communicates with the blacks, whites, and grays of the interiors. However, the design of the interior achieves a softer touch by using bespoke detailing and a rich palette of materials such as stone and timber," says the architect.
