“Bower Architecture was enlisted to help design a house that nestled in as part of the surrounding natural and built environment.” – Habitus Living
Between the crisp blue sky & sea close by and the redness of the exterior walls timber, this Victoria state home (that’s the Australia version my friends not B.C.) blends seamlessly with its natural surroundings. Step in then and the home opens up to a double height living space with ample light, windows and wait, what, cinder blocks?
The decor is unencumbered by colours and tchotchkes leaving the space speak solely through the subtlety of the chosen elements that constitute its structure and functional spaces. I am obsessed with the white terrazzo flooring, a huge trend that is resurfacing and that will hit the broader markets as of this fall I am sure, but also the black window casings and accents that tie in the two levels of the home together.1
