This charming and cozy mixed material house in Sydney, Australia makes for the perfect growing-family home.
What makes this comfy abode unique is the fact that it is designed using alternating cubes of timber and glass to create a harmonious balance between natural sunlight streaming through and a cooling shade -- and unobstructed views of the backyard and privacy at the same time.
Designed by Australia-based office Panovscott, the mixed material house is home to a family that needed to give their gloomy Victorian house a modern upgrade and create space and privacy for their children.
"Their second child was due shortly when they approached us, so they wanted light, air, a place for the family to commune, and they wanted a great building," says architect Andrew Scott from Panovscott.
