This wood and steel house by Melbourne studio Architects EAT has a huge projecting roof that shelters a first floor barbeque deck.
Named Linear House, the seaside residence provides a family holiday home on the south-west coast of Australia.
A circular skylight punches through the roof of the terrace to create an outlet for smoke from the grill.
A concrete wall splits the building into two long narrow halves. The architects planned both of these sides using the visual metaphor of beads on a string, which dictates that rooms are arranged in a linear series.
Ground floor bedrooms and a first floor dining room are positioned on the north side of the house, where they have a view towards neighbouring tennis courts.
A first floor living room is located to the south, adjacent to the outdoor deck.
Architects EAT also designed another steel and wood house that we featured a few years ago see it here.
