Australian architectural studio Vibe Design Group designed the Kew House 3.

This 321 square meter private residence was named Abode House of the Year in 2012 and was lauded for the combined use of  extensive glass, timber, stone, floating and hidden cabinetry throughout.

Kew House 3 by Vibe Design Group:

In this design, we sought to embody the iconic elegance of the 1950/60s modernist style. The facade drew inspiration from a classic styled stereo cabinet, with the spaced timber battens at opposing ends mimicking the speaker elements.The glazing to the rear of the residence takes full advantage of the northern orientation while providing transparency across the main level of the house.

The complexities of the outside world are simplified in the interior environment where we have alleviated the usual clutter of coors by camouflaging them within the timber veneer walls.
