Cosham Street House by Martin Friedrich Architects
Martin Friedrich Architects – an Australian studio that you might remember from their Brighton Townhouses project, have attracted our attention yet again with another home located in Brighton, Australia. This time, the Playful House, or as it is officially known as the Cosham Street House in their portfolio, comes with a spectacular exterior design.
Its soaring white curves and striking facade distinguish it from the rest of the homes on the street.
Martin Friedrich architects were approached by a young family to design a house for them that was playful, full of life and with a certain character that represented their active lifestyle.
What started off as a renovation turned into almost entirely a new house where sweeping curved walls of reinforced concrete enveloped/framed the original building externally.
Whilst inside the house internal bridges join wings around the house surrounded by 2 storey voids.
When one has finished lounging by the pool they can relax in the shade of the wave style pool house.
