Nestled in a leafy neighborhood of New South Wales Australia the Pavilion House fits this billing perfectly as Alex Urena Design Studio conjured up and created a contemporary home that is draped in greenery.
Replacing the traditional view of the landscape outside the lowered rooftop garden becomes an integral part of the open plan living space on the second level of the house. This also allows the homeowners to keep an eye on the little ones as they spend time on the rooftop terrace even while letting in a healthy dose of natural light.
But devoid of a gorgeous natural view and surrounded by the concrete jungle the in takes a completely different approach. Designed by Scenario Architecture it is a lowered and glazed section of the roof terrace and garden that does the trick here!
Designed by NatureArch Studio this narrow house is set on a plot that is just forcing the architects to make the most of every inch of space on offer. What it lacks in width the home makes up for easily in height as its various public and private spaces are stretched across four different levels.
A clever layered approach to artificial lighting along with the stream of natural light play a pivotal role in ensuring the spaces inside this slender house do not feel claustrophobic.
