Bright Australian Retreat

The Esuoh House was designed as the perfect retreat from the cluttered urban environment. One can sunbathe and enjoy lemonades on the sun bed or watch a movie under the stars, just like at the drive-in movies. Hofman and Brown Architects were the ones that designed the Esuoh House located in Yallingup, Western Australia. The Australian weather is perfect for this 2.009 square meters residential construction and the bright sun helps accentuate a beautiful collection of textured building materials: grey stabilised rammed limestone walls, waxed dado plaster, polished concrete, aluminium, glass and stone. The architects say that: “The aim was to enjoy the connection with the adjacent bush landscape while also creating a more private “internal” connection to the outdoors, with a protected north-east “outdoor room” incorporating the plunge pool and outdoor cinema, framed by the enclosing stone walls.” All the rooms have found shelter on one floor, covered by a low pitched skillion roof that collects rainwater. The north elevation sheltering four bedrooms benefits from a fully glazed wall that opens up to a long verandah accessible from each bedroom. I am sure that this gorgeous Australian home can inspire you to create your own comfortable retreat.
