Inspired by natural forms | Hewlett street home by MHN Design Union
In designing Hewlett House Australian architects MHN Design Union (formerly MPR Design Group) draw inspiration from natural surrounding elements to create modern sanctuary, a sculptural dwelling that literally soars above the rest.
Design elements of facade mimicking the eucalyptus tree branches, serve as juxtaposed privacy and sun shield, a subtle introduction to what to expect inside.
House is comprised of two seemingly independent sections, the lower turned toward the street, and the upper facing the view.
The view that opens to below has the feeling of hi-tech cockpit perspective, as if you soar above the surrounding beach. Design takes advantage of mild climate with living spaces that open to the outdoor. From ground floor retractable glass panels that merge in to the backyard with pool, to slanted retractable glass wall on the upper floor - it's all about beach living.
Rounded interior lines contrast with sharp modern angles, it softens living spaces in to futuristic yet "family-friendly" environments.
