The Bulleen Residence by MODO Architecture is a new house located in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, this contemporary home was designed for the home woners who wanted a home that would feel open, be filled with light, have natural elements, and be connected to the garden.
“Formally, the building is made of a series of brick volumes on the ground floor, which are then connected by small glazed links and a long black metal clad first floor. This formal gesture is then expressed in the interior volumes, every room has a subtle distinction with its use of materials and levels, each space then has its own sense of individuality. Allowing each room to be connected while remaining distinct.
Two sets or large sliding doors are located to either side of the dining area, which can then be slid completely away to open the house into the garden entirely. This space then seemingly becomes part of the exterior landscape and at the same time the interior rooms, this blur between the two creates a dynamic use of space, and forms an active relationship for the clients and their house and garden.
