Inspired by 60s and 70s Stereo Cabinets: Kew House 3 in Melbourne
Kew House 3 was completed by the Victoria based studio Vibe Design Group. This 3,455 square foot modern home was inspired in part by 60s and 70s stereo cabinets. The spaced timber battens at either end are mimicking speaker elements. The house sits atop steel posts reminiscent of stereo cabinet legs.
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.”
