There is something inspiring about modern architecture and contemporary design. While we’ve seen some outstanding examples lately, today, we take a look at something compelling. Today we get a look at The Cumulus House. The home combines post-war Californian modernism with traditional Australian fibro beach shacks. In doing so, the structure offers a minimalist design with unrivaled ocean views.
The Cumulus House was designed as a weekend home, situated on a steep hillside. The dwelling features a simple box that sits on top of a series of slender columns. The home is oriented toward the North, and the interior is host to some fantastic views of the natural surroundings. The home features incredible views of the coast, taking in both the Bass Strait and the Separation Creek valley.
The living spaces are left open, taking full advantage of the vistas, anchored by a four-sided fireplace. The interior expands to a sheltered outdoor terrace through the glass facade, effortlessly bringing the interior outside. The home is a beautiful example of contemporary design.
Take a closer look at this beautiful modern home in the images and find out more about the dwelling from Chris Connell Design. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more modern architecture coming very soon.
