A concrete house inspired by the dream ship
Australian architects Tony Owen Partners designed this Concrete house in Sydney, Australia for a specific customer. He actually planned the house himself. The house forms a curved shell on the outside, the sails of a dream ship reflect. Well, that’s back-to-the-roots design! The client wanted a lot of fun areas with patios and patios that are laid out with floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize the connection with the large open space.

Creating a unique and iconic house according to the customer’s order was a challenge for the architects, as the location is also in a fairly homogeneous suburb. An interesting fact is that the original idea for the staircase as a sculptural element formed in dark polished concrete came from the James Bond film “Never Say Never Again”. That Concrete house is “L-shaped” to maximize the solar aspect for the living spaces. The light is reflected on the polished stone floors.
