A Mid-Century Inspired New-Build That Looks The Real Deal! – The Design Files

When a young family of six outgrew their existing 1970s home in Brighton East, they engaged InForm to design something more appropriate, but with a similar feel.

The family admired the densely-planted central courtyard of their original house, and specified an interpretation of this in their new home.

Separating the two structures is the new central courtyard with a pond designed by Eckersley Garden Architecture. A further garden with a pool, dining area and pavilion occupies the backyard.
