We’re all for shipping container houses, but there’s something to be said for a similarly geometric style built with a more traditional architectural setup. Enter the North Bondi Residence from Australian firm CplusC and you’ll see exactly what we’re talking about. Named for its location in the coastal suburb of Sydney known as North Bondi, this residence takes a relatively square floor plan and transforms it into something completely magnificent through the use of material contrast and the perforated CplusC style. Concrete seamlessly mixes with steel that mixes with wood that mixes with marble that mixes with glass to create a “stunning family residence which is both a springboard for entertaining and a private family retreat.” With a downstairs area for entertaining complete with glass lap pool, dining area and BBQ space, along with the private upstairs space with bedrooms and an outdoor green space, this is a house that’s as equally suited for a quite night in as it is a dinner party.
