Retro Down Under: Australian house has complex exterior construction with the addition of English retro styling

Retro Down Under: Australian house has complex exterior construction with the addition of English retro styling

From the outside, this house exudes complexity and dynamism with volumes that overlap and overhang to create depth within the building. One of the best features of this house is the concrete patterned blocks that cover over one of the windows. These blocks are very retro in their appearance, as were often used in the 60’s as a concrete fencing around British homes. Located in Perth, Australia, this house was developed by Residential Attitudes and was created to meet the daily need of the family inhabiting the space. The architects managed to achieve the perfect balance of light and volume between the internal and external spaces. The interior of the house a cosy atmosphere, and has some really beautiful retro styled additions that carry the theme on from the exterior concrete patterned wall.
