Half Grounded, Half Floating Three Generation Family House
Cantilevering over the sloped Australian terrain of Melbourne, this 450 square meter three-generation family house was designed for entertaining. This sophisticated, half grounded, half floating architectural piece was named the A-G House and is part of dKO Architecture‘s portfolio. Mid-century modern architecture inspired the design and construction of this very up-to-date residence. Dark-framed windows defining the line between interior and exterior remind me of the ones seen on the Cousin-Homes in Melbourne. Dark grey walls on the facade are sandwiched between white overhangs and white-lined terraces. A shared central outdoor entertaining area is nestled between two independent living wings, flooding the interiors with natural light through glazed walls. Materials like concrete, bluestone, glass and timber were combined to shape a home defined by open interiors uniting family under a modern roof.
