Federal House

The 2021 INDE.Awards winners have been announced, and from a wide array of entries there could still only be one winner and it went to the incredibly deserving Federal House by Edition Office. With a monochrome exterior composed of black-pigmented concrete and black timber, this impressive house sits like a void in the Byron Bay hinterland of Australia. The stunning interior welcomes in the greenery through floor-to-ceiling windows, while a central fern garden brings an organic presence to the heart of the home. The bedrooms expand into a covered outdoor living space, and beneath the upper platform is a subterranean pool with an opening that frames in views of the rolling treetops.
