A concrete house by Whispering Smith architects

Let's talk concrete! One of my personal favourite materials and to be found in almost every room of my own home. I love the raw feeling of concrete but could never live in a complete concrete box, I always need a good dose of white and wood combined with it to soften the concrete. This minimalistic home located in Perth, Australia has the perfect mix of materials and the outside of the home shows how beautiful soft the use of concrete can be as well.

Whispering Smith: "We are a staunchly feminist architecture firm working across both residential and commercial projects. They specialize in working with clients on innovative approaches to delivering architecture and we are champions for millennial housing, sustainable architecture, local craft and friendly minimalist architecture. House A is the first of three carbon neutral dwellings in Scarborough made from high recycled content concrete panels and whitewashed recycled brick. The house is 3 storey mini tower with a garage underneath and a loft on top. Minimal land, minimal house, minimal life"
