Abstract House is a single-family home designed by Matt Gibson Architecture + Design in Melbourne, Australia.

An addition to an existing red brick double fronted Victorian, this home is arranged to allow a strong axial progression from front to rear. Formal spaces are zoned within the original front rooms whilst the rear caters for the main family spaces at the ground level with sleeping spaces above.

The new works are externally conceived as an assemblage of abstract geometric shapes adapted to meet the site constraints and reminiscent of the formal and material simplicity of early European modernist houses. Adapted to meet an Australian climate the interior spaces are composed simply and opened up to work seamlessly with the architecture and the exterior.

The forms and material textures (including red brick and black zinc to coordinate with the existing building) continue internally and help designate and define certain programmatic functions within the house, whilst the white plaster of the interior along with floor materials and joinery elements manoeuvre externally to dissolve interior and exterior.

Moraleja Residence by Darro18 Arquitectos

Towards the north, the Moraleja Residence is structured through a series of volumes with turned back façades and slanted roofs that penetrate in the forest clearings. The overhanging volume of the family room on the first floor acts as an entrance canopy, inviting guests to enter the house.

Penthouse Mamaia North by Interior Store

The apartment - with a total area of 275 sqm, was just an open space, when Interior Store designers made a commitment to create a comfortable, modern and functional space.

San Francisco Home With a Minimalist White Interior and a Generous Vertical Space

For this four-story family residence, the architects experimented with vertical circulation and crisp white materiality to create a spacious, vibrant, and geometrically engaging house. Organized around a singular central spine, the project is an exploration of fluid continuity and volumetric adventure.

Patton New-Century House by Giulietti Schouten Architects

The clients requested an architectural style reminiscent of Mid-Century modern homes, thus the Patton New-Century House is comprised of long, low-sloping, gable roof forms, vertical cedar siding, and warm interior wood finishes
