Well planned and unique architectures are always a delight to watch and this is what makes the interior space more interesting to live in. This time I have brought to you a very exclusive architecture that not only makes the living comfortable, but also supports the modern lifestyle of the residents. This Sydney based River house has been designed by MCK architects keeping in mind even the minutest requirements of the family members.

The complete interior has been intended in a way to use every inch of space in an artistic manner. The exteriors, dining area, living, kitchen and even the simple seating spaces have been designed so flawlessly that it creates a wonderful ambiance inside. The use of glass in major portions of the house not only keeps the space brightened, but also creates a transparency with the outside environment.

River House, Australia

For the beautiful River House, the site itself provided wonderful opportunities to the design and the architect. The magnificent North facing panoramic views over the Lane Cove River complement the beauty of this architecture. The air-space has been utilized to gain that extra footprint space and create a floating datum, which is actually duplicated as a ‘lid’ over itself. So, the two floating parallel floor plates delightfully cantilever above the open castle-esque sandstone basement walls.

While the first floor using stones remains largely recessive from the river side, the generous circulation zones welcome the residents upon entry. A wedge shaped woodwork floats in plan like an islet and also separates the circulation zones from the main living area. In addition to this, it also adds to the experience of journey through the space. The living area is a bent tube shaped space with kitchen as the pivot. Significant views of the local natural zone can be enjoyed from this space. And the most interesting section of the house is the swimming pool that fabulously allows family members to rejuvenate and a have a fun all together.
