One glance at the Perforated House by Kavellaris Urban Design simply won’t do; the architecture of the home is so unique that it begs the eyes to look back again, at least a second time, to drink in the juxtapositions of what was constructed.

"By day the building is heavy and reflective and by night inverting into a soft translucent permeable light box," Kavellaris Urban Design says of The Perforated House.

"The use of operable walls, doors, curtains and glass walls enables the occupants to change the experience and environment. This architectural manipulation of space blurred the boundaries between inside and outside, the public and private realm."

The architecture was actually a response to the firm’s research into the Terrace typology. Take a look at the pictures of the Perforated House by Kavellaris Urban Design, located in Melbourne, Australia, in the gallery above.
