Modern Australian Architecture - Leaf House mimics terrain

In what has been described as “Late 20th-Century Structuralist” style, this amazing modern house in Sydney, Australia was designed by Undercurrent Architects to respond to the raw Australian terrain. This artist’s studio, an addition to the existing main house, reflects nature with its layered leaf-like corrugated copper roof, held up by wildly twisting root-reminiscent steel columns, and wrapped in 3-D curved glass that blurs the boundary between indoors and out. This contemporary, nature-inspired space enjoys views of the ocean and the landscape, and apart from its use a work space, is a favorite spot for meditation, yoga and as a guest retreat excavated beneath the bedrock.
