North Perth House by Simon Pendal Architect

The Space

The North Perth house encompasses minimalistic design using a nature inspired palette.

North Perth House is a unique alteration and addition to a Federation home in the country’s West. Each room adorns its own characteristics, but sharing common styles and materials to create a balanced design. Each area is a dichotomy, as the living room showcases curved ceilings and a circular skylight to embody a ‘raw’ atmosphere, whereas the kitchen/dining has low ceilings and soft features.

Curated by architects from Simon Pendal, the project started at the beginning of COVID-19, creating an unfamiliar uncertainty with the build. The team proceeded to accomplish the ‘quirky bush garden with a homestead’ brief, using natural materials indoors to connect to the garden outside.

Throughout the interior is a collection of raw, nature-like materials like blonde timber, soft bricks and natural light. Paired with muted green colours and minimalistic hardware, the home exudes a calming space. The timber elements include GoodWood Victorian ash exposed beams, custom doors and door frames, picture-frame windows, bespoke furniture and joinery.

GoodWood is ASH’s brand of Victorian ash and Tasmanian Oak hardwood, combined to increase supply of a blonde option to Australian projects like this one. Both are quarter sawn, graded and processed at our manufacturing plant in Heyfield, Vic. Learn more about GoodWood here.
