Shaun Lockyer Architects (SLa) collaborated with Healthy Abode Living, to design ‘Greenhouse’, an new family home built on acreage outside of Brisbane, Australia.
Surrounded by bushland, the house has an open and welcoming interior, with brick and wood elements.
Louver windows and sliding doors allow the breeze to flow through the interior of the house, keeping it cool.
In the kitchen, simple wood cabinets line the wall, while the windows act as a backsplash behind the cooktop and sink.
All of the social areas of the house have large sliding wood-framed glass doors, creating an indoor/outdoor living environment.
The backyard has a large grassy area, with a covered outdoor dining space and kitchen, and a swimming pool.
Some of the bedrooms have a Dutch door, adding a fun farm-inspired accent to the house.
In another bedroom, wood beams, like in the social areas of the house, draw the eye upwards to ceiling, creating a sense of height.
In the bathroom, a partially frosted glass panel provides privacy in the shower without blocking the light, while a large window beside the bathtub gives views of the trees.
Here’s the view from the garden that shows the large sliding window in the bathroom.
