Interiors: Courtyard House Somers
Architecture & Interiors
It feels like all our favorite interiors are coming from Australia lately! Seriously, gorgeous stuff. We’re loving the interiors (and exterior, when we think about it) of the Courtyard House Somers by Opat Architects. It’s got a pretty crazy exterior architecture with lots of different visual elements, but it’s the interior that we’re loving. Enjoy that wood ceiling, how the ceiling slants a bit and all that gorgeous natural light. We just like the mix of modern lines with a sort of bohemian feel to the furniture and art.
“In this new home the client brief was for a low maintenance home to accommodate an expanding family with regular guests. Located on a semi-rural context, one hour from the CBD the house is designed to operate independently of public water, gas, sewerage and electricity. The design incorporates a range of outdoor spaces as an extension of the living spaces. Spaces are orientated due north and the shape of the house is designed to allow the sun to heat spaces during winter and to naturally ventilate during summer.”
