Australian studio BVN Architecture has designed the Elysium 169 House in Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. The house was designed as part of the 189 houses Elysium Noosa. This generous and open house celebrates its location on the edge of an environmental park overlooking a lake. The sculptured modernist expression of its white washed walls and carved recesses combined with the softening effects of timber screens and natural finishes give a sense of contemporary elegance. The interplay of natural surfaces and light contribute to the luxurious tropical character of the dwelling.
