Kelder Architects have recently completed a custom contemporary house in Brisbane, Australia, that was designed for their builder/developer client.

The new house design replaced a 1960’s brick & tile house, however a breeze block screen from the original house was recycled into the new design, and also inspired the design of the house to reference the Mid-Century period.

The ground floor interior spaces open to a courtyard, allowing the home to be centered on indoor/outdoor living. Outside, there’s a bbq terrace, a swimming pool and a lawn area.

In the master bedroom, there’s a built-in window seat that makes use of the corner, while a sliding glass door opens up to a small outdoor space with a privacy screen. As the house is positioned on a slope, the bedroom looks out to the garden at the front of the house.

Also on the upper floor of the home are additional bedrooms and a second bathroom. The bathroom features turquoise tiles that wrap around a curved wall, while white subway tiles have been laid vertically, drawing your eye upwards to the small skylight in the shower.
