Diverse and Intriguing Architecture in Australia: House 14
House 14 was designed by architect Dane Richardson and is located in Eagle Bay, Australia. Its uncommon geometry makes for an original looking residence, one that is both modern and highly functional. Here is more from the official architect’s description: “The north facing terrace with its built in “fire box” is the focus of all outside entertaining. The open “fire box” provides a fantastic place to sit and star gaze in the evening. The planning divides the building into three wings. Children’s bedrooms, guest room, bathroom and games/tv room to the western side. The master bedroom and study to the eastern side and the main living volume & court yard central to these wings. Cantilevers and exposed structural elements feature and further add to the strong lines of the building. Upper levels provide shelter for lower levels.” The home also features sustainable features, such as the possibility to collect all potable water and low energy use systems.
