Located on a corner site in Brighton, Australia, is a unique family home with harmonious transitions between interior and exterior spaces.

Continuous materials and expansive operable glazing blur the boundaries between interior and exterior, drawing the natural elements inward.

Named the Quarry House, this striking, bluestone-clad dwelling has been designed by creative architecture studio Finnis Architects in collaboration with interior designer Carmel Ludica. The seemingly simple, geometric exterior form balances with the minimalistic, open interiors, natural materials, and repetitive architectural elements that carry throughout the home from indoors to out. 

An open floor plan seamlessly transitions from interior to exterior. Large spans of glazing and the extension of natural materials break the wall between indoors and out.

A refined, subdued palette forms the exterior facade and passes onto the interior living spaces. The rectilinear shape of the home is decorated by vertical and horizontal joints of bluestone cladding, adding texture to a simple formwork. Expansive glazing breaks up the solid wall while drawing plentiful daylight into the main living spaces. 



Set within a corner lot, the home takes advantage of views outward along the length of the site through large expanses of clear glazing.
