An Australian house design – determined by nature and dynamic
The captivating home near Melbourne in this illustration is ideally suited to the family’s original mission. They wanted a simple, rectangular apartment, which inside made for wide, light-filled premises.
The house was designed by Robson Rak Architects.
As a result, they have a house that disappears into the landscape, emphasizing the beauty of the surroundings as their own architectural features.
