House With Courtyard In The Middle in Australian Outback

The dark facade of Somers House with courtyard in the middle was designed to blend into the shadowy background of the Australian outback. Melbourne-based Rowan Opat Architects designed this house with a low, inconspicuous profile, a flat roof and clad it with dark wood and windows, bringing it into its surroundings with subtlety. Inside, this modern house is anything but subtle, understated or humble. Rich wood ceilings and floors finished in radial-sawed timber give interiors a rustic-chic style which is complemented by the large windows, outdoor terraces, and a spacious courtyard in the middle of it all. On a whole other level with nature, this contemporary country home boasts eco-friendly features like sustainable materials, natural lighting and passive solar heating. Rowan Opat Architects
