Minimalist Living In The Middle Of Australian Bushland

The Fig Tree Pocket is a minimalist house designed for a modern family that demands a balanced mix between minimalist interior design and Australian bushland atmosphere. Designed by Shane Plazibat Architects, this house rests on a 2,000 meter ground in Brisbane, Australia.  It features an arrival, a vast courtyard, a small swimming pool, bedrooms, and a living room. Stepping inside the house, the dwellers are welcomed by bamboo garden that stretches along the house creating comfortable ambiance of the room. The garden also lends its peaceful and natural atmosphere in addition to the arrangement of ventilation and natural daylight that brighten the room.

Timber wood is widely used as part of natural material in this house such as the stair, window frames, bathroom walls, etc. Natural atmosphere also comes from wooden material in kitchen pavilion and outdoor terrace that are separated with timber sliding door. The living room is located as an extension of courtyard with a timber sliding door that gives a spacious feeling. Stepping outside, the courtyard is designed to be a great place for family gathering with direct access to the kitchen, living room and pool. All in all, the Fig Tree Pocket is a modern and sustainable living for dynamic people.
