Folding shutters and awesome sunshades energizing the concrete facade of an architect designed house with a unique design!
Dynamic shading, wooden folding shutters, floor-to-ceiling windows and a host of other super modern elements: that’s what the house called “Sunbreaker” is going to offer us! Overlooking the ocean, this house is out of the ordinary to immerse ourselves in a welcoming and unique atmosphere. This incredible architecture was imagined and designed by “Studio Workshop” in 2017 and covers an area of 173 m². The architects offer us a successful marriage of wood and concrete also accompanied by a garden on the roof . Stay with us to discover more images showing the extraordinary beauty of the “Housebreaker House” in Papua New Guinea.
Folding shutters in full harmony with the curved sunshade
This house has a beautiful exterior design that will remain etched in the memory. The folding wood shutters and the matching sunshade warm the concrete facade while creating a cold / heat effect. The same design is incorporated inside to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The house has two bedrooms with wooden cladding and privacy.
Yes, the folding shutters and the sun breeze are the focal points of the exterior design of the house. However, the rooftop garden can not go unnoticed! Climbing plants descend along the facade to give it a natural touch. Moreover, the sunshade offers unparalleled privacy to residents and its curved shape energizes the facade in an original way that makes the house unique and worthy of envy.
Ditto for the interior: ceiling dressed in wood and accompanied by exotic furniture in complete harmony with each other. Bay windows connect the interior with the outside to reveal a superb view of the ocean. At the same time, the wooden folding shutters act as a sunscreen protecting the living room from the sun’s rays while allowing fresh air to enter the room. Some recessed downlights illuminate the room in a discreet way. Just like the facade, wood and concrete invite you inside the house to achieve a contemporary ambience.
A more detailed overview of the concrete facade shows the beautiful contrast that is created between concrete and wood. In addition, climbing plants contribute to the vibrancy of the facade. A small glass terrace allows you to better contemplate the wonderful landscape that unfolds before the eyes.
Bay windows and folding shutters for an open and ventilated space
The contemporary house is well equipped with folding shutters and folding bay windows to provide a fresh and airy atmosphere. Thus, the passage in-out is much easier and allows the inhabitants a quick access to the swimming pool. Yes, the “Sunbreaker House” also has a small pool that is ideal for cooling off during hot days.
This is an example of the unique and unusual architecture of this modern house. The curved shapes of the sunshade create a 3D effect while harmonizing beautifully with other wooden elements such as folding shutters and the vertical garden on the side. The latter is organized in a very interesting way and creates a small Zen paradise.
In general, lighting plays a very important role in the successful decoration and development of a home. The architects understood the idea very well and therefore relied on modern lighting to focus on the folding wooden shutters and the solar shading. The final rendering: the facade is illuminated discreetly and elegantly.
Inside, there is still a trend that is gaining popularity: the concrete staircase. Indeed, it is several autonomous markets whose minimalist style certainly wins our sympathies.
Another natural material invites itself into the design of the inviting house to accessorize the garden: natural stone! When it comes to modern garden layout, stone is the essential element since it tends to create an authentic atmosphere.
Dressed in wood and concrete, the interior is very modern!
Open to the dining room and kitchen, the living room enjoys plenty of natural light thanks to the folding glass doors. Concrete walls and floors contrast with the warm wooden cladding which contributes to the natural atmosphere.
As mentioned above, the folding shutters guarantee an intimate atmosphere while letting in some light. This is also true for the brise-soleil which creates a romantic atmosphere in the bedroom.
