distinguished by its solid, vertical timber-clad façade, this suburban melbourne property by schulberg demkiw architects utilizes internal courtyards, wooden screens and greenery to form a comfortable and private family home. without compromising the natural light, the three level space has seamlessly integrated light wells and indoor garden courtyards to promote a calm and almost japanese-influenced interior.

indoor and outdoor spaces have been seamlessly integrated together

 

 

 

along with a refined material palette, the blend of wood and concrete surfaces creates a comfortable background, framing the muted decoration used throughout. the central staircase, semi-closed off by timber fins, cuts and connects the floors together. this play on transparency is an interesting addition, bringing the house together.
