Simplicity is key in contemporary box designs. This 3 bedroom house plan removes all decorative elements and focuses on the essential functionality which in turn translates into a brilliant piece of architecture. Two bedrooms and a large balcony are located on the first floor with the third bedroom on the ground floor. An open floor plan combines the kitchen, dining and living room into a single flowing space. A study room, guest WC, pantry and laundry make up the rest of the plan. To the front of the house a large verandah ties around the living room creating additional shade against the afternoon sun.
