House Mailbox »(Letterbox house) in Australia by McBride Charles Ryan architects. Letterbox house – is not the first experiment in the design of the architectural bureau «McBride Charles Ryan architects». This is one of the most striking architectural teams Australia, which is always surprised by their unusual architectural decisions and findings in the interior design. Letterbox house was built on flat terrain near Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula, Australia. As conceived by the architects, this house is not suitable for permanent residence, it was conceived as an ideal place for a weekend getaway. Letterbox house from the outside looks like a turning inside out. This feeling is achieved thanks to a good selection of materials and unusual forms of this house. Around a lot of free space, it can be used for recreation is incredibly diverse. From the street you can not directly read the form of construction, it develops deeper into the complex area of an irregular composition. Upon closer examination you realize that the facade is only a mailbox. The authors sought to respect the surrounding space and the scale of building that modest sea suburbs, they attempted to subdue the house forms the surrounding plain landscape. This house is like a half-hearted space. Half-closed, half open – a new interpretation of the Australian verandah. “We like the buildings that make smile, of course, in a good way” – say the creators Letterbox house. “This house makes people smile – a house with very little frontage on the peninsula, the house that starts with a mailbox and is transformed into a full veranda. One, he recalled the ship, the other – a sheer cliff. We like that the building is a set of associations. People often ask us what is the prototype of this house, we always answer: one that sees you. Mornington Peninsula – a place where at the time rejected all the formalities and conventions. We wanted our house consistent with these principles, reminded you about it. This house is far from the architectural conventions, he appeals to other disciplines. ” Letterbox house is completely different emotions. What is it? Where is the main entrance? The authors say: you do not need a “main entrance” in the house for the weekend – just look for some. Such were the aspirations of architects. On a hot summer afternoon when the afternoon sun paints a wall at home in a golden hue – is the perfect place to spend time here. Interior of the house is made in a more conservative manner, but there has not been without non-standard solutions. Designers seldom use the bright red color combined with natural wood. Red is often used in conceptual contemporary interiors, and the tree – the more traditional. Nevertheless, the combination of them in this project allows us to strengthen the impression of the interior, to emphasize a transition of internal space to the outer. As conceived by the architects, the red shelf on the wall will keep various souvenirs and trinkets picked up at the beach, family photos – memories of a good vacation. When owners to fill those shelves, they will symbolize the spirit of this house, the lifestyle of Australian families.
