The other day, Melbourne design/architecture studio EdwardsMoore tweeted about a 'cubby house' that's up for rent, and beyond the fact that I'm not planning on moving to Australia anytime soon, I was compelled to take a peek.
I mean, anytime designers bother to mention a house that's for rent, it has to be something worth seeing, non?
Indeed, the cubby house is a beauty, albeit a naturalistic one that doesn't seem crunchy-granola boring. Ben Edwards & Juliet Moore, the pair behind the studio and presumably behind the cubby, seem to create the most ingenious designs for their projects
And their website attests to this: a quick browse revealed images of bulbous concert set designs, multi-sided canopies, and web-like retail interiors that seem to cocoon around the shopper. All very trippy...
With this Melbourne multi-level home, however, I felt particularly drawn to the exposed chipboard facades and clean, cantilevered surfaces. Somehow, the two divergent elements come together to create a warm and organic space that seems like a world unto itself.
If I ever were to move to Australia...
