This compact steel-wood house was designed by Utz-Sanby. I find it, like most of their designs, very simple and minimal yet, despite its compact size, feels very spacious and inviting. The house (and I quote Utz-Sanby) is steel framed with a combination of stained eco-ply and colorbond cladding. The floors are mixed hardwoods, the decks are Tallowood and the window and door frames are made from western red cedar. The combination of materials has created a warm and inviting interior, which blends in with the natural vegetation on site. This wedge-shaped house affords the inhabitants privacy whilst making the most of the aspect and views from every room.
You see the thing about the Utz-Sanby folks is that they rock with nature! They create spaces that so effortlessly bring the outdoors in they’re mesmerizing…
