Barrow Modern House With Contemporary Wood Exterior

Andrew Maynard Architects has completed a modern Barrow house in Melbourne, Australia. The contemporary house has extension which extension appears as an arrangement of timber boxes, each independently rotated and subjected to varying amounts of extruding and manipulating forces.

The extension challenges the traditional nature of timber construction. Normally lightweight and fragile, added wall thickness to different areas results in a structure with a fluctuating sense of mass. The dynamic and varying nature of these environments is further enhanced by differing window arrangements and framing techniques.

  1. Cool design. Concrete covered in wood? Sturdy and trendy. Wooden exteriors give us the feel of an eco-friendly pad. I’m waiting to see bamboo exteriors or log exteriors.
    Imagine a pad like this seen in the big cities? this would certainly be an eye catcher and the cause of envy among visitors and friends who may drop by.
    One comment though, these wooden exteriors seem limited to curves; I couldn’t picture how it would look like if curvatures were incorporated.
    That I would want to see. I bet it’d look awesome.
