Wooden ceilings ground some of the home's more industrial features in its organic setting.
The interiors boast a chic, contemporary feel.
"We are able to...take full advantage of the northern orientation, introducing passive solar design techniques, which allows the design to maximize its thermal efficiency," says MODO founder Michael Ong.
The main floor has an open living, dining, and kitchen area with unobstructed views since support beams were unnecessary for the domed structure. The floors are concrete with a decorative finish.
The two pavilions are fitted with large sliding glass doors, which open to two wooden decks. Here, views are oriented toward the peaceful natural landscape and sea beyond.
The couple snagged their Womb chair, a floor model, on sale.
The bed is attached to the ceiling and hangs on a platform two meters above the floor. Elevating the bed allows the main living areas and storage to be tucked below.
The open-plan living room and dining area feature a cementitious floor covering, ERCO recessed LEDs, and EDL cabinetry laminates.
At the heart of the couple's redesign is the flexible guest room that can be adapted into a playroom, extra living space, or as another bedroom thanks to privacy curtains and two concealed built-in beds.
By removing the walls of a former bedroom, the architects have created a more spacious living room that is now flooded with natural light and views.

What can't be obviously ascertained from this sleek reading chair? How the Northern sunlight warms the concrete slab floor in winter to help maintain a consistent internal temperature, "regularly achieving 25 degrees Celsius without heating in winter," said the architects. "It was important to create a space where the occupants could enjoy the summer warmth, as well as remaining at ease during the cold Ballarat winters."
In the living room, the horizontal lines of the timber beams at the ceiling echo the bespoke cabinetry that surrounds the gas fireplace. The dining room pendant is the Gubi Semi Pendant.
The open-plan living room, kitchen, and dining area are handsomely punctuated with Lightyears Caravaggio pendant lights and the dramatic Moooi Random Lights.
Rather than opting for the schematic, open-plan design of the renovated Queensland worker's cottage, the formalized living, sitting, and dining areas are compartmentalized; each room is dedicated to their function.
Across from the sofa, a concrete fireplace surround is topped with a custom walnut wall treatment.
While the exterior "faithfully interprets the typical formal themes of this Italian region," says the architects, the inside is much more modern and minimalist. Reinforced concrete walls and ceilings meet a red concrete floor, which blends with the courtyard outside.
Positioned for stellar outdoor views, the screened porch features concrete floors, a cedar ceiling, natural fir posts, and midcentury chairs.
In another contrast to the horizontality of the house, the architects added a translucent, multi-colored cocoon chair by Patricia Urquiola that hangs from the cantilevered slab.

The built-in sofa was designed to be very functional. The base has storage capacity and the mattress is the size of a single bed for an extra guest. Plus, industrial grade foam and fabric ensure the cushions will hold up to wear and tear.
"I drew from the layout of Jens Risom’s cabin and laid the room out around the light that comes in through the main windows," says Kenny.
"With this cabin I wanted something that was robust, so you could enter after an outdoor activity, kick your boots off, start the fire and put some food on," says Kenny. "But at the same time have a feeling of space with the high ceilings, and some luxury and comforts of modern living like a nice shower and great water pressure."
Inside the studio, sliding fir screens hide storage, utilities, and a bathroom. The ceiling and wall panels are plywood, the floor is radiant heated concrete. An Eames lounge chair from Herman Miller mingles with an IKEA sofa.

Living area
In the main living areas, two vertical veils divide the high, inclined ceilings, and also serve as partitions for the kitchen, dining room, and living room without completely separating the volumes. The living room is also connected to an outdoor gazebo.
Thirty-foot ceilings feature skylights for increased natural lighting. The walls are paneled in larch and provide concert-hall quality acoustics, and the floors are a polished black concrete.

Poured concrete floors and crisp, white plastered walls have been used to give the interiors a bright and fresh look.
The floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room give the impression of being outside even while cozily enjoying a cup of tea inside. All the windows in the house are double-paned and filled with argon gas. Petra Sattler-Smith says that “even when it’s 10 below you can put your hand on them and they are still warm.” Hydronic radiant heating embedded within the concrete floors not only enables barefoot walking during the coldest months but also warms the furniture and everything else in the room.

The material palette is simple and designed to age gracefully, featuring stained cedar siding and bright interiors with exposed ceiling structures and pops of primary colors throughout.
Arbel’s projects—both products and architectural commissions—follow a chronological numbering system. The house itself is his 23rd design, while the one-of-a-kind glass pendants that accent nearly every room like a starscape are called “28.”
Faulkner employed a strategic use of concrete, steel, wood, and glass to avoid “dating” the property.
