The shape ‘T’ is repeated throughout the house starting from the shade next to the swimming pool (caused by the home) to the aerial view of the residence itself. But the real showstopper here is the way in which polished cement morphs into everything ranging from an alfresco dining table kitchen islands and dining room benches to relaxing daybeds and even a fabulous full-sized bed in the master suite.
Inside the living area is split into two half-levels with one containing the Scandinavian-style living area and the other filled with a modern kitchen and dining room with a view.
Nestled on the eastern shore of in the is one such masterpiece that blurs the line between the interior and outdoors without relying on a series of large glass doors and windows.
But that is not the end of surprises at this awesome Belgian home as a sloped green roof that seems like an extension of the garden landscape ensures that the structure completely blends in with its backdrop.
Designed by Johnsen Schmaling Architects the dark exterior of the house has a distinct contemporary vibe and yet allows it to disappear into the densely forested backdrop as the day wears on.
What was once a dark house because of its orientation is now a light-filled environment with the novel living space being flanked by the small courtyard on one side and an inviting rear garden on the other.
But it is the central courtyard that is the true showstopper here as it becomes the heart and soul of this Aussie home where life outside seems far more alluring than indoors! Turning the natural slope of the site into an advantage the interior features a stepwise arrangement of spaces with each one flowing into the next.
