Located on the coast of Victoria in Australia, the Concrete House is a project by Auhaus Architecturean award winning design studio operating out of Melbourne and the Bellarine Peninsular. The sheer size of the home together with its unique architectural features and combination of concrete and warm wood make it a very pleasant sight to see and even better to live in.

From the architects: “This project was a new 4 bedroom house on the Victorian surf coast. Backing onto wetlands and golf course but tightly hemmed in on both sides, this concrete house has been designed as a walled sanctuary, opening up onto itself – an internalised habitat with locally planted roof gardens and curated glimpses onto the wetlands. A portal opening in the concrete facade conceals a secluded courtyard leading to the glazed front door. Upon entry, the house opens up into double height gallery space, glazed on one side to reveal the plan which wraps around a large, protected north facing courtyard. Fine timber battening and brass detailing throughout provide patterning and warmth.”
