Kew House 3 in Melbourne, Australia, details by Vibe Design Group:

“In This Design, we sought to embody the iconic elegance of the 1950/60′s modernist style.

The Facade drew inspiration from a classic styled stereo cabinet, with the spaced timber battens at opposing ends mimicking the speaker elements. The glazing to the rear of the residence takes full advantage of the northern orientation while providing transparency across the main level of the house.

The complexities of the outside world are simplified in the interior environment where we gave alleviated the usual clutter of doors by camouflaging them within the timber veneer walls.”
