Brisbane-based design firm Maytree Studios designed this Glasshouse Residence, simple yet stylish, open-plan with an industrial vibe, warm and human-scale.

The house has two floors merged into one, and glass balustrades help them to become one open space. The walls are done in white and brick clad, and the dark and light-colored beams; dark metal is also widely used in the décor, and it gives the space that industrial yet warm modern look.

The living space is full of light and can be opened to outdoors if needed, this is one of the best features here – feel both outdoors and indoors. There’s a hearth and a TV on the wall but the centerpiece of this space is a large gate that gives access to outdoors.

The kitchen is modern and black, every unit is sleek and the handles are hidden. There’s a brick backsplash and a unique kitchen island of warm wood, with sculptural design reminding of vintage desks more than of kitchen islands.

On the second floor there’s a home office space and a playing room for the kids. All the private areas are hidden and separated from the open space to make them more intimate.

The designers chose to spruce up the space with various textures and shapes, not colors: brick walls, wooden beams, a faux animal skin rug, warm woods in the kitchen and blackened metal panels. The home is industrial and open but very inviting and makes you want stay there. Besides, every space is tightly connected to outdoors, terraces and just gardens, through gates, doors and windows, all the views are used to advantage and all the rooms are filled with light.
