Fusion between architecture and sculpture by Bourne Blue Architects in Australia

December 13, 2013 Comments Off on Fusion between architecture and sculpture by Bourne Blue Architects in Australia



This home, located above Dudley beach, near the city of Newcastle NSW Australia, was a project which perfectly speaks for Bourne Blue Architecture. Their client had recently moved to the area and the desire was to find a family home to satisfy the needs of the family. Therefore, it had to be fully of light and airy, with access to different views as the forest and the Pacific Ocean. The strategy was to divide the house into two parts, private and public. They should be connected to each other with a staircase that goes under the swimming pool. The patio and swimming pool offer a chance to catch some lovely sun. At the level of the garden there is the space for bedrooms. The interior was finished with polished concrete and recycled flooring, walls are made of concrete blocks. Customers have also chosen a landscape architect (Richard Southbury) who is also a sculptor, and his task was to design outdoor spaces and create some impressive sculptures. Richard used plant species that are typical for the region and as a result there are some exotic elements. His sculptures are hand-carved and being located near the swimming pool and the garden, they provide a subtle dialogue with the overall idea of this creative architectural piece.
