Jewellery Box House is a new house on a small suburban lot with the defining details of overhanging eaves, a carapace of steel cladding, and a simple palette that emphasises the building’s form.
For the young family it is a jewellery box that conceals and embraces intimate moments. The open plan creates a sense of spaciousness and connection to the outdoors, with a transparency created by the flow through indoor and outdoor rooms.
