Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Australian-based firm Jackson Clements Burrows Architects have designed the modern Kew House which located in Melbourne, Australia, at the end of a cul-de-sac in the coveted Yarra Boulevard neighborhood. The architect applied the three shells concept on the modern house that make up the horizontal stacking-block form.
Each of the shell contains certain areas: the entry shell with study and garage, the middle shell with bedrooms, bathrooms, and laundry, and the end shell with kitchen, dining, and living areas.
The three forms are suspended in the tree canopy with a supporting structure of circular two-tone columns. Beneath this platform level is a glazed area with an additional bedroom, bathroom, storage, and living areas, a floor of synthetic grass and a children’s play area. The house uses passive thermal heating and cooling techniques, with a northern orientation, overhangs and minimal openings to the west, as well as operable windows in all rooms and a main hallway acting as a breezeway corridor.
I don't know if your power-bills could as high as two-thousand bucks a month, but sure this tips will help you out of it.
