The Pirates Bay House nestled in the small district of Blairgowrie in Melbourne, Australia is architecturally sound with excessive use of mildly stained wood. Surprisingly, the architects and interior designers are Australian, as this type of layout is often reflected in Scandinavian and Japanese style. The house is designed by Stephen O’Connor and Annick Houle of O’Connor and Houle Architecture. The house is shaped in the form of an ‘L’ and is only one storey high.
This home houses the architects and their two children in a 2000 square foot floor. The windows are particularly placed in hidden areas of the house so the light reflects off the wood and materials so the viewer can recognize the texture in their surroundings.
