Mash House

The Mash House by Andrew Maynard Architects has taken shape on its site in Australia, and, minus a forthcoming regrowth of the immediate landscape, it looks great.

It's more like a wooden object extruded from an industrial design seminar than what you might expect from a suburban home, and it's also gloriously retro-colorful on the inside, with a lime green kitchen and pixellated red tiles in the bathroom.

Here are some photos.

The interior, as I mentioned, is a very Dwell-friendly throwback, complete with seamless expanses of color, rounded edges, sliding glass walls, and retro furnishings (brought in by the homeowners).

Very little project text is available online at the moment, however, so I'm basically just describing these photographs; I'm sure you can see for yourself how the interior has been styled.

And here are two shots of the bathroom, red tiles included.

Finally, these process-shots taken during construction show the house in a bit more of its context—which makes it look even more interesting as an experiment in suburban form.

I'd personally love to see more bookshelves—à la the Casa Kike or the interior of The Brain—but that's probably only due to my own megaton collection of outdated paper-based texts...

Initially, I thought this was a crossover with the "Unhappy Hipsters" blog.

I like the peek-a-boo effect of the exterior lime green window sill.

Why does this remind me of Jacques Tati's Mon Oncle?
