HOUSE OF BRICKS

7th January 2015

I can’t resist exposed brickwork, so it’s easy to see why this new house in Melbourne caught my eye when it was featured on HomeDSGN. House of Bricks was designed by the Melbourne based studio Jolson who describe the building as a “contemporary re-interpretation of warehouse living.tumblr_nhrx1th9mU1sij10fo2_1280 tumblr_nhrx1th9mU1sij10fo3_1280

Jolson go on to explain: “The architecture and interior design has been carefully considered to explore texture and colour. Inspired by our clients love of travel, the exposed patterned brickwork that characterises this project draws reference from woven rugs and kilims. The pallet of diverse materials carefully layers raw steel, exposed concrete and robust timber.”

This striking combination of materials is juxtaposed with punches of colour in the furnishings, like the hot pink and marigold-hued sofas above.

What a wonderful, exciting home with which to kick off 2015.
