Paul Uhlmann Architects has designed a new house in Byron Bay, Australia, for a family that enjoys a relaxed living environment.

At the front of the house, two boxes sit atop the ground level, with window louvres for privacy, security, and ventilation.

Stepping inside, we see the house is filled with natural materials that are local to the area.

In the kitchen, a large L-shaped island with an overhanging countertop provides a place for the family to gather while cooking.

The dining area separates the kitchen and the living room, where the wood ceiling seamlessly flows from the interior to the exterior spaces.

Thin lengths of wood in different shades have been used on the walls and ceiling, creating a natural warmth for the bedroom.

In one of the bathrooms, the stone wall creates a backdrop for the minimalist black pedestal sink, while the backlit round mirror adds a soft glow to the space.
