This incredibly chic house with a skylight carries with itself luxurious and contemporary connotations. The building is located on Phillip Island in Australia and is designed by Branch Studio Architects.
Dubbed 'Casa X,' the abode is spacious and boasts a courtyard that is framed by "three interconnected pavilions." In addition, these volumes have been used to separate the layout of the home in a logical way — while the master pavilion is positioned in the east and the guest quarters are located in the west, the south one houses the kitchen, living, and dining areas. As the exterior walls of Casa X have been left blank to "maximize privacy," light is permitted through the courtyard, as well as through a "series of north-facing skylights."
