Adam Kane Architects Complete a Contemporary Project in Blackwood, Australia

By • Jun 19, 2018

This building complex resembles, by its exterior shape, a farm, and goes in perfect harmony with the landscape that surrounds it. It exteriors of compressed cement and corrugated metal give it a very modern and fresh touch.

Designed by the architectural firm Adam Kane Architects in 2016, this simple but beautiful project of only 93 square meters is located in Blackwood, Victoria, Australia.

Space between annexes

Surrounded by extensive green areas, this project was built next to the pre-existing central house and thus creates a sense of community among them. The design is based on two simple modules that serve different functions. One of them is a painting studio, and has a small terrace which can be accessed directly and used for those moments when we seek to rest and disconnect from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. It has vertical glass windows that allow the perfect, natural lighting of the space, something particularly important as the room is meant to be used as a painting studio. The other module serves as a garage area.

When we enter the studio, we can see that the white walls and high ceiling of the small space serve to make it look larger, and a thin line of light in the ceiling serves to give the space a very modern and current touch.
