Dezeen's Jessica Mairs takes a look at the unique, perforated façade of a concrete-clad house in Melbourne by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects.
The 2,045-square-foot abode's exterior is constructed of panels of concrete block and metal. While the cement blocks are opaque, the windows and garage doors feature perforated metal shutters. The circular openings allow natural light to stream through and cast a distorted pattern of light and shadow over the interior's white-painted walls.
"The facade is abstract yet engaging and interactive with the street. The operability and translucency of the shutters contribute a level of engagement with the street, amplified in the evenings when the glowing perforations animate the facade to create a playful and vibrant entry forecourt," the firm said.
