At Avenuu our philosophy is to capture and celebrate Australian design sensibility. With this in mind, I was instantly intrigued by Architect Andrew Burges’ Brick House.

Each room managed to embrace views of the sky or other landscapes. His use of materials and sustainable credentials made me want to feature this impressive home. The deep design detail and skill required to execute the excellence of this type of home, with the additional site restrictions, can only be achieved by an extraordinary architect and skilled builder, while the client must have faith in these professionals and the process. The rhythm, volume and seamless connection from the internal and outdoor spaces are masterful.

The natural palette works perfectly with the simple, uniform choices of concrete, brick, and timber. All materials were selected for longevity and durability. All rooms only requiring overhead fans as cross ventilation plays its role to keep the temperature just right.
