  • Split-level timber decking joins this building to the guest pavillion, which contains a living and dining area, and two bedrooms.

    The house is constructed using galvanised steel columns and dark plywood panels, chosen to match the clients cattle.

    Large full-height windows, the over hanging roof and three metre-wide external timber walkways frame views of the landscape.

    The home is constructed using a modular design called Intermode, launched by Carr Design Group in 2007.

  • Carr Design Group Director Sue Carr commented, We are elated to have won this exciting and prestigious award.

    Our Modular House for Intermode represents the result of our determination to create a simple, modern, modular housingsystem with the key benefits of a faster, more cost effective build, total flexibility in design and a strong environmental focus.

    The outstanding recognition of this project to date is exciting not only as a nod to the quality focus and design intelligence behindthis work but importantly recognises professional project delivery, reliable client service and proves that a house based onmodular components and construction can result in a refined, modern and well built project.

  • Neale Whitaker Editor-in-chief Belle noted, The Belle Georg Jensen Award recognises and rewards an Australian DesignPractice for the most inspirational and successfully realised residential interior. A stringent list of criteria ensured that entrieswere judged for their attention to brief, aesthetic value and commercial viability. This simple and clever structure placed against astark landscape and the near austerity of the interior leads to an amazingly utilitarian, gallery-like feel.

    This represents Carr Design Groups second major award win for the year having won one of the highest accolades for residentialdesign, the 2009 Interior Design Award for the beautifully crafted Courtyard House.

    Carrs Modular House for Intermode was also Shortlisted in the 2009 Interior Design Awards and the 2009 Interior DesignExcellence Awards.

    Interesting way of procuring an architect-designed house the build quality seems very high for a modular design.

    6. Bruce Says:November 9th, 2009 at 1:55 pm

    Nice, but an awful lot of exterior photos for a project winning an interior design award; photos of the kitchen and moreinterior details and a plan would have been appreciated.

    7. S Says:November 9th, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    simply irresistible.. simple nice clean cut. the floating plan and columns reminds me of Mies van der Rohe. thumbs up!

    8. Ron Brenner Says:November 10th, 2009 at 1:24 am

    Very clean and simple but where is the art? It could use a little bit of warmth inside.

    9. Aaron Young Says:November 10th, 2009 at 9:26 pm

    Rectilinear repetition. This house looked good in the 90s. Australia is better represented by the Klein Bottle House.

    10. hugo Says:November 11th, 2009 at 11:10 am

    because the klein bottle house lends itself very well to modular design doesnt it?

    well thought out comment.

  • The interior to my way of thinking is rather stark and impersonal. Just as it should be in architetural photos. The architectshave done their job marvellously and left the interior for the clients to add texture and life, or not.I would hope that this was a fair representation of Australian architecture. While I do really like the Klien Bottle House itseems needlessly complicated to be a true marker of Australian architectural ideals.
