I have to admit, I have seen the The Caulfield House by Bower Architecture a few times on the web but every time I rediscover it, I believe it is still one of my favorites. The striking dark panels that cover the exterior are the first element that draws me in. I love the horizontal line constructed of windows that seem to slice the home with natural light while leading the eye of the viewer across the entire house. The major color pallet is one of my favorite black, a medium to dark toned wood and white. Absolutely beautiful! More after the jump.

Architects statement
Externally, zinc and concrete conceal a peaceful interior retreat, bathed in natural light. Varied north facing living volumes across both floor levels, ranging in scale from expansive to intimate are arranged around, behind and above a central courtyard. The courtyard joins differently to each volume, transforming a corridor into an outdoor reading room or adding to the volume of living areas. Natural light, winter sun and passive cross ventilation is bought into and through these areas by a central gallery and louvered clerestory which run along the central spine of the house.
