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.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
