Alexandra Buchanan Architecture have designed a modern house in Brisbane, Australia, for a family transitioning from young children to one looking to support the growing independence of young adults.

 

The exterior of the black house features a wood slat element that provides privacy for the home owners and visual interest for the residential street it sits on.

A wide path leads past the wood slat feature and to the front door.
