'FMD Architects' recently designed a sewing-inspired home that is connected by a series of timber beams. For many architects, wooden beams add a touch of rustic charm to a modern structure. These architects took the concept one step further by extending the beams into the outdoor space.

The 'Cross-Stitch House' is a single-storey residence located in Melbourne, Australia. The home is comprised of a living area and garden space, both of which are connected by a series of timber beams. The wood beams are installed along one side of the building, which helps to frame the wall and the home's pitched roof. The unique design creates a number of linear protrusions that mimic the look of stitches. These wood beams are then extended into the garden, which helps to make the two spaces feel more connected.

The Cross-Stitch House demonstrates how designers can use traditional details such as timber beams to create a modern living space.
