The mid-century modernists, chief among them Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe, had a tremendous influence on the shape of architecture for decades to come, and d+k House is a testament to their time-spanning reach. The contemporary home in Mona Vale, a town in New South Wales, Australia, is explicitly indebted to the movement, with a bungalow layout and sharp lines that reference works like Wright's Falling Water and van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion.
To be sure, d+k House carries its own aesthetic as well. The home is indeed low slung in order to symbolically align it with nature, but it has a rooftop patio that gives the residents beautiful views of the surrounding tropical foliage and beachfront landscape as well.
