Orb House

Orb House designed by Bojan Simic Architecture is located on a site overlooking Studley Park and the Yarra River, this concept pavilion required a landscape that both embraced the dramatic styling of the building together with a textural softening of the site. The design borrowed from the simple geometric architectural lines to create a number of striking outdoor spaces.

These spaces included a front garden retained by a mono-formed embankment and 2 private open courtyards. A small internal summer court using a cambered garden wall and industrial metal screening, and a central open space that fused together with a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and entertaining area using the simplest of treatments.
