Located in Perth, Australia, the Salvado Street Residence is a modern beach house that designed as a compact and low maintenance residence for a retired couple. The house designed by Bates Smart Architects.
According to the architects:
The planning concept is based on a courtyard typology featuring a pond, around which the private spaces and the public entertainment spaces are organised. This duality is emphasised architecturally by separate treatments of the private and public spaces: the public spaces are open plan, outward-oriented and unenclosed spaces gathered under a floating Miesian roof whilst the private spaces are inwardly focused and enclosed within thick masonry walls which create a sense of privacy and retreat.
