    Default Seacombe Grove House in Melbourne

    Seacombe Grove House by b.e architecture

    b.e. architecture created this modern residence in for a client in Melbourne, Australia. It features 360 degrees of outdoor green space rather than a front and back yard. The ground floor, however, has been organized as two distinct zones for day/ summer and night/winter use. This space is visually and physically accessible from all lower level living rooms through continuous floor to ceiling glass. The whole of the ground floor is within a protected courtyard garden, contained by a continuous high fence, enabling the entire area (excepting pedestrian and car entry points) to be private and usable.

    I can't find a single thing I like about this house. Reminds me of 70's style medical plazas with the plants.

    It's very gray and tomb-like.

    but yeah it needs wood and personal touches.

    I love the color of the hardwood floors in the house (not the painted black ones in that one room). I hate the all marble bathroom, it's just way too much marble. If they just had the vanity done in marble and the rest of the room done in something else, I would have ooh'ed and aah'ed over the marble sink.

    I live near this place and have driven past a few times. From the street it looks like another typical Melbourne Concrete Bayside Box. They seem to be aiming for the Balinese indoor/outdoor living vibe but Melbourne just doesn't have the right climate for that so I hope they have a good heating system. The bathroom is a nightmare.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
