The Salvado Street Residence is located in Perth, Australia. This modern house design was designed by Bates Smart Architects where the home design much more focusing on the owner which is a retired couple in Cottesloe. The architects decided to make a highly modern house but also had a low maintenance.
The architects described the house as follow: “The planning concept is based on a courtyard typology featuring a pond, around which the private spaces and the public entertainment spaces are organised. This duality is emphasised architecturally by separate treatments of the private and public spaces: the public spaces are open plan, outward-oriented and unenclosed spaces gathered under a floating Miesian roof whilst the private spaces are inwardly focused and enclosed within thick masonry walls which create a sense of privacy and retreat.” Since Australia also categorized as a country which has a very unpredictable season and harsh climate, the house was also built to respond to the challenge and this contemporary Australian residence also said to “reveal a unique take of contemporary Australian Architecture“. Dear Best Readers what do you say about this great contemporary Australian home?
