This balanced modern home is constructed by Auhaus Architecture and is situated in Barwon Heads, Australia. The designers sought out to bring about a delicate harmony between natural elements and modern living, in order to guarantee a relaxed and entertaining ambiance. Hence, the Courtyard house is "intertwined with texture, warmth, raw simplicity and earthly luxuriance."

The front facade of the balanced modern home features the finest quality natural hardwood in a horizontal slab structure. The earthly tones of the design are met by the unforgiving and dominant presence of bluestone. The materials are so combined and designed to withstand the adverse weather conditions of the Australian coast. The interior of the balanced modern home features a semi-enclosed courtyard which makes even the inside perceptible and inviting to nature.
