The gorgeous home now features a blend of the 50s Ranch style rustic touches that give it inviting warmth and modern ergonomics that make the life of its young homeowners an absolute delight.
The fabulous use of timber in different rooms of the house is one of the many ingenious features of this Austin home that one would normally not come across in most other prefabs.
Essentially the delightful residence brings together a series of courtyards and open spaces bound by glass and stone walls to create a relaxing imaginative and exclusive interior. Apart from the obvious stone and glass presence it is the sturdy steel beams that bring another interesting dimension to this Aussie home even as the two butterfly roofs open up to bring in as much sunlight as possible.
If you love the adaptive reuse of structures then you are bound to instantly fall in love with the Water Factory in Victoria. Revamped and refurbished by Andrew Simpson Architects this Aussie home showcases a wonderful fusion of heritage exterior and contemporary interior with each influencing the other in a remarkable fashion.
Despite the more traditional backdrop one is never far away from modern ergonomics and comfort here. Artwork and sculptural pieces that reflect Vietnamese culture and heritage complete this masterful vertical house.
Exposed brick wall sections in various rooms also add to the appeal of an otherwise contemporary setting with the lower level containing the living area and the top floor housing the bedrooms along with the kitchen and dining space.
The courtyard house is a perennial favorite among homeowners who crave a residence with a flowing indoor-outdoor interplay that blurs the traditional lines of architecture. Of course this is far more difficult to accomplish in an urban setting where both space and privacy become an issue.
