IN­SIDE AND OUT

Homes+ (Australia) - - READERS’ HOMES -

Once they’d de­cided to stay in the street, Kobi and Ge­or­gia de­signed their home to open onto it. The en­tire front of the house is built around con­nect­ing with the street and in­ter­act­ing with their neigh­bours. Via the over­sized slid­ing doors, the house opens com­pletely, pavil­ion-style, to the front yard, where deck­ing spills down into the garden. “I had seen large slid­ing doors that slid back into a wall cav­ity in mag­a­zines and on de­sign tele­vi­sion shows, and loved the idea,” Kobi says. He worked on the con­cept for a week us­ing re­pur­posed tim­ber from his de­mo­li­tion and skate­board wheels. “It seems to have worked be­cause the doors seal re­ally well and roll well back and forth,” says Kobi.
