We are pleased to bring you a brand new gallery featuring the beautiful Ironside home by Base Architecture.

The Brisbane, Australia based company has crafted another ultra-modern space using traditional materials, suffusing the interior of this timber clad home with strikingly progressive aesthetic.

A large open-design living room space is the centerpiece upon which the rest of the home revolves, with full dining and kitchen areas integrate beneath its two-story ceiling. Rooms in the upper levels overlook this area, framed in glass panels for safety and transparency.

The overall theme tying the home together is a rich mixture of natural materials in bold, modern arrangements.

Sharp angles meet marble and timber, pristine white and dark black hues create tension and contrast, and a myriad of retractible, full height windows and glass doors allow the home to share the environment with the outdoors.

The minimalist box shape of the exterior allows for a surprising amount of innovation within and without. The timber cladding adds a natural element to the contemporary shape.

Moving indoors, we see a lush collection of contemporary furniture over glossy hardwood flooring. White surroundings highlight the ultra-modern details like glass safety walls defining the two levels overlooking this space.

With a vertical, angled look, we can see the upper level spaces overlooking the living room, with a large central dark wood wall dividing the area. The bold mixture of colors and texture throughout is highlighted by the two full stories of windows wrapped around.
