House C3 is a modern yet demure home in Sydney, Australia. Clad in wood, the Campbell Architecture design makes use of classic, even suburban materials and imagery. The facade is painted gray and white to accent the traditional shiplap dormers and shutters. The neutral palette is upheld by the white fence but naturally disrupted by the ivy hanging from the trellis. Inside, the walls are painted white, and the floors are made of wood or concrete so that light reflects throughout the space. For lighting and views, there is a large, circular skylight cut out of the double-height section of the living area. Additionally, the rear wall glazing lets the sun’s rays stream into the open plan kitchen, dining room, and lounge. This main room also overlooks the backyard through the system of windows and doors. Upstairs, the study, bathroom, and three bedrooms are bright yet private because of the elevation, greenery, and adjustable shutters. In the bedrooms, nooks such as a window seat provide a place to relax and enjoy the comforts of both the indoors and the outdoors.
