Southern Highlands House by Benn & Penna Architects

View all 11 Photos


This home-office pavilion was designed in Sydney, Australia by Benn & Penna Architects. Built on the same plot as two existing buildings, the new construction echoes their ribbed cladding and ultra-modern curves and is connected to them by an industrial terrace. The small house has a white and light gray exterior that complements the nearby structures’ white and washed red. It also features a concrete porch with thin metal columns. Inside, the minimalist space suits work and relaxation, providing just enough room for a wood fire, built-in shelves, and seating.
