Contemporary Low Maintenance Retreat in Australia: Salvado Street Residence

modern residence01 Contemporary Low Maintenance Retreat in Australia: Salvado Street Residence

Salvado Street Residence was designed by Bates Smart Architects and is located in Perth, Australia. Especially designed for a retired couple in Cottesloe, the home in the photos below is highly modern, but also low maintenance. Here is more from the architects: “The planning concept is based on a courtyard typology featuring a pond, around which the private spaces and the public entertainment spaces are organised. This duality is emphasised architecturally by separate treatments of the private and public spaces: the public spaces are open plan, outward-oriented and unenclosed spaces gathered under a floating Miesian roof whilst the private spaces are inwardly focused and enclosed within thick masonry walls which create a sense of privacy and retreat.” Responding to its climate and space, the Salvado Street Residence is said to “reveal a unique take of contemporary Australian Architecture“. Australian readers, do you agree with this last assertion?

    What a great design! Just because it’s “low maintenance”, it doesn’t mean it has to be plain. I like the flow between the public and private spaces.
