Studio Jackson Scott : OCM House

Studio Jackson Scott, based in Sydney, has just delivered to an Australian sponsor a charming, minimalist hideaway nestled on lush New South Wales grounds. The design of this unpretentious family home is part of an ecological approach to reduce waste. Overview of a very current challenge.

Designed and realized in a relevant logic of sustainable development with a limited budget, this intimate dwelling of 97 square meters is a true architectural feat. With a simple, rectangular plan, the building has a black geometric facade and a sheltered terrace lined with warm wood flooring. It is indeed equipped with an envelope of fibrocement panels, wooden vertical mullions concealing its joints and creating decorative exterior lines.


Inside, plywood-clad walls and polished concrete floors make up the aesthetics of living rooms. The organization of the building is thought according to a division of private and common spaces. Behind the veranda, there is a large living room with doors, glazed or full, modular, allowing residents to change the layout to their convenience. On the other side are three similar bedrooms and the bathroom.

Clean and simple, the decoration is in the image of the house. Dark textiles and carpets soften the austerity of concrete floors by their raw simplicity. The wooden furniture matched to the interior wall cladding helps to create the harmony of the whole.

At OCM House, the key words are comfort, minimalism and tranquility.
