The Nature Screen on the Nicholson House Creates a Perennial Shade

The Nicholson House located in Melbourne, Australia is stunning in architecture, design and decor.

The most interesting feature is the sheet metal screen on top of the glass windows. It is intricately designed as a treetop, complete with detailed outlines of branches, leaves and even a hooting owl. I love the nature facade, especially since there are real trees surrounding the house. The metal screen is enough to create shadows when the sun hits the windows, so it helps to keep the house's interior cool during hot days. I also love the wooden exterior of the Nicholson House by Matt Gibson Architecture + Design, which frames the home in an elegant and sophisticated way.
