The home you see here is designed by Andrew Maynard Architects in Australia. The form is a simple box and the architect has ingenious employed low cost UV stable wall decals to fulfil the council's requirement for 75% opacity to second storey spaces (in order to minimise "overlooking"). The screening also reflects heat and glare away from the expansive glass windows and eliminates the need for curtains and expensive screening.
above: It is interesting how the (narrow, corridor-looking) space ends at the window here. (above) I really like the way the kitchen bench becomes part of the stair to maximise the use of space underneath.
