Studio BKK architects completed the Beach House, a 3,756 square foot contemporary home located in Victoria, Australia. According to the architects, the overall design of the residence was inspired by the art of origami, defined as “folding of spaces over and upon each other: There are a number of these folded spatial sequences within the house that allow for playful discovery and encounter as well as opportunities for varying connections between spaces. The large masonry wall forms an organisational spine to the house whilst also anchoring the various elements firmly into the landscape. This home offers various readings and differing options for occupation to the owners. It is intended that living in the house will be an unfolding series of moments, linked closely to climate and site that will continually delight and surprise.” Do you find this architecture approach as daring and captivating as we do? What do you think of this home’s interior design?
