We’re reviewing a cool post by Freshome here, take a look.
Living in a tranquil suburb seems to be everybody’s dream, especially those performing commuter journeys as part of their daily lives. This is because the peaceful atmosphere offered by a suburb area is both sweet escape and the best place to relax after doing exhausting, even tedious daily routines. Referring to my very own experience of living in an area near Jakarta and witnessing people going to and going home from work, If I were them, I would prefer to stay somewhere far from the city—in Bogor, for instance. Even though a big city is quite promising to make a living, it is definitely not the best place to sleep at night.
Now let’s move on to Australia, one of Indonesian’s neighborhood countries. Have you ever imagined how an Australian suburb residence looks like? Maddison Architects try to portray the modern version of this by constructing the Coronet Grove Residence in Beaumaris, Melbourne, Australia. The interior design of this residence emphasized on classy complexity of the architecture. This reminds me of the pictures of houses printed on Jakarta Real Estate brochures or in magazines about interior designs. However, what is presented by Maddison Architects is rather more complex as it focuses on a more-detailed interior design. The concept offered is interesting because the house itself is divided into southern and northern part based on different activities performed by its residents. Furthermore, the way the room designed enables those living inside to enjoy the natural view as well as the presence of natural light through its huge window.
There is merely one thing, though, that rather bothers me, which is the design of the house itself. Despite the magnificence and classiness it does possess, for me the house design is somewhat too luxurious to be build in a suburb area. However, it doesn’t matter if the main purpose of designing the house is to bring comfort to its residents or to create contrast with its surroundings. In addition, this is really a fine spot to take a rest or to have a short and sweet, even sudden runaway from the office.
