Salmon Residence takes you inside a minimalhouse. Located in the leafy green suburb of Essendon, the dream house emerges from the residential site as a contemporary glass and concrete structure. Inside a minimalhouse, intrigue is ignited through brutalist architecture, an interplay of materiality and a modern interior decor.
Throughout the housetour, the architecture and interior design showcase a minimalist intent. Inside a minimalhouse such as Salmon Residence, tailored furniture pieces feature throughout the interior design in keeping with the brutalist architecture. Bespoke glass windows encourage movement within the home and its spaces, intertwining the interior décor and exterior areas. Gracing the entry courtyard is a dramatic pond, poised in front of a large glass window and adding a tailored element to the minimal design.
Concrete fortifies the minimalist interior design and architecture, showcased within the housetour through the kitchen bench, external paving, interior flooring and the facade – this foundational base is expected inside a minimalhouse, but is offset with the fresh use of timber. The furniture within the home is an extension of the clients’ character, layered atop of the home’s concrete base and minimalist architecture.
FGR Architects approached Thermeco to enhance the design vision within the home. Inside a minimalhouse such as this, glass plays a dynamic role in crafting the perfect dream home. The glass is designed to appear seamless, as if the furniture and the outdoors are one within the minimalist home.
