Ash Way HouseContemporary Exterior, Perth
A four bedroom, two bathroom functional design that wraps around a central courtyard. This home embraces Mother Nature's natural light as much as possible. Whatever the season the sun has been embraced in the solar passive home, from the strategically placed north face openings directing light to the thermal mass exposed concrete slab, to the clerestory windows harnessing the sun into the exposed feature brick wall. Feature brickwork and concrete flooring flow from the interior to the exterior, marrying together to create a seamless connection. Rooftop gardens, thoughtful landscaping and cascading plants surrounding the alfresco and balcony further blurs this indoor/outdoor line.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
While the plain-Jane appearance of undressed besser blocks may not be to everyone’s taste, designers are increasingly finding innovative and creative ways to use them as a decorative feature. In this Perth, WA home, for example, designer Janik Dalecki has flipped the blocks on their side to create a stunning perforated feature wall to the alfresco area.8 Breeze Block Features That Are a Breath of Fresh Air
