Using cost-effective materials such as brick veneer, painted compressed sheeting, and colorbond roofing and cladding, as well as passive design to up the sustainability ante, Kavellaris has turned what is actually a standardized building design into something really special.

Oriented towards the north on a corner plot with certain spatial restrictions, the home has what the designers call a “hipped roof.” More than just “hip,” the slope makes way for a water feature – ostensibly to funnel rainwater – and a peel-back skylight. The latter adds plenty of natural light to the most inviting suburban home we’ve seen in a while.
