Kris Keen of Keen Architecture, has sent us their latest project, located in Perth, Australia, that they’ve designed for a couple with a busy lifestyle, who wanted a low-maintenance home they could just ‘lock and leave.’

 

The home has a central double-height void with a courtyard, that creates a secure and very private outdoor space.

All of the living spaces surrounding the courtyard, open up to it through bi-fold doors, like you can see here in the kitchen.

Wood has been used throughout the home to add a natural element.

On the other side of the courtyard, is the main living and dining area.

The wood stairs lead up to the second floor, and a rooftop deck.

Before we get to the roof deck, here is a look at the bedroom, that has a large window, and also a sliding door out onto a private mini deck.

The private mini-deck that can be seen on the front of the house, has shutters that close and lock, protecting the space from the elements.

Here is the roof deck, with a large entertaining space, and a half-roof to protect from the sun.

Perfect for entertaining, the roof deck takes full advantage of the views, river glimpses to the south, and city views to the east.
