The Orb House in Melbourne, Australia by Bojan Simic

March 16, 2010 By: archinhome Category: Modern House Design

The Orb House was designed by an Australian architect Bojan Simic, located in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by the dwellings of ancient Pompeii, this approach was to create a tranquil introspective living environment based on the central courtyard typology around which all living, working and entertaining orbits. The building’s form and footprint is characterized by a curved central spine wall which defines two distinct zones – the ‘living’ zone within the rim and the ‘sleeping’ zone beyond. This defining rim provides interiors with a theatrical backdrop while creating intimate residual spaces externally. Source
