DAHA’s modern family home

 

flexibility, transparency and functionality are the key qualities DAHA sought to achieve with this two-story dwelling in bulimba, australia. designed for a modern-day family, the 300 sqm residence combines fluid living spaces with the option to later compartmentalize them, meaning the house can adapt as the family does.

 

the living, dining and kitchen spaces on the first floor are arranged around a private courtyard, in which a date palm tree anchors the whole scheme. the bedrooms can be found upstairs, where a screening element provides both privacy and shading.

a building that breathes 

 

the architects describe the project as ‘a building that breathes’ and as a house that balances the openness of sub-tropical living with the privacy needed for a suburban setting. ‘it is this achievement that will make banya a lovely space to inhabit for all stages of family life,’  says DAHA.

 

the central courtyard, the abundant glass, and the large outdoor living area at the rear of the house establish multiple connections to nature, which can be enjoyed in changing seasons and different times of day. the team also prioritized capturing views of the adjacent park to enhance the feeling of space. for the material finish, the palette was kept light and predominately white, with accents of timber for an added touch of warmth.
