Although family homes are not the most inspiring concepts to pop up across the world’s architectural map, this one from CplusC Architectural Workshop, simply named the Living Screen House, is a rather impressive one.
Located in the coastal Sydney suburb of North Bondi, the Living Screen House was over three and a half years in the making from CplusC Architectural Workshop, and has received widespread recognition since it was completed in December 2016.
The two-storey development includes a number of innovative and unique features, both internally and externally, which make it standout. Designed for both easy entertaining and private family time, the home sits on a narrow site and its commitment to passive solar design and natural daylighting drove much of the resulting form.
The façade of the house is made up of a wood grid with windows and perforated metal panels. These metal panels allow for a vertically garden to be grown over time. Upon entrance, before even reaching the interior of the house, you are greeted by a front courtyard that opens to the sky. Continuing on from the courtyard is a path that leads from the entryway of the house, through to a large pivoting wood front door that sits on angle, and provides access to the home. Inside and to the right of the front door is the expansive media room with a wooden accent wall and sliding glass doors that open up to the pool deck and the above ground swimming pool.
