Australian Architecture Firm Blurs Boundaries in the Perforated House

The Perforated House is an unusual modern house with its own agenda. Designed by Australian architecture firm Kavellaris Urban Design in an infill neighborhood in Brunswick, Victoria, the house “is a platform to establish a critical dialogue within our built environment; to raise questions as much as to find solutions,” according to the architects. “The project is a critique on our cultural attitudes and how we determine them, on what we consider to be of heritage significance and how to narrate such ideas in a critical and contemporary manner.” This modern terrace house features a unique facade that can go from opaque, to translucent, to fully open to the outdoors. Blurring the boundaries between public and private spaces, indoors and out, the home’s exterior is reflective by day, boasting a solid look adorned with graphics. By night the home becomes a modern, semi-transparent light box. Behind the massive sliding walls, the house boasts an artistic interior where it’s all in the details. This innovative house plan puts the main gathering areas on the first floor, with outdoor living rooms opening onto a north-facing terrace. This courtyard house design featuring a colorful mural really sets this cool Australian house apart from the rest. Kavellaris Urban Design
