Shutter House

Mobilia, an Australian company specialising in high-end designer products,  has teamed up with Perth based architectural and interior designer studio State Of Kin to furnish Shutter House, an inspiring and forward thinking home designed for the modern family and furnished with some of the world’s most renowned and decorated brands; carefully hand picked to compliment the architectural beauty of the home.

Situated across from the iconic Lake Monger in Wembley, Western Australia the aptly named Shutter House is a concrete block that utilises the warmth of locally sourced timber to create a battened timber skin that wraps around the home, while a mechanical system allows the timber façade (Shutter) to open and close, creating a sense of enclosure and intimacy whilst still allowing unobstructed views to the adjacent lake. The residence is spread over three levels. The ground floor consists of a four car garage, wine cellar and entry into a spectacular three storey void that connects all levels via a feature staircase. The timber entry and elevator shafts are flanked by crisp white porcelain wall lights by Michael Anastassiades which sit effortlessly within the playfulness of the architecture.

The outdoor terrace and pool area which are connected to the main living area are adorned with State Of Kin’s recognisable curved deco references, richness and balance of colour and materiality which is best demonstrated with the tiling in the area, clear cut deco inspired reveals into the pool and the custom tiled curved bench seat; that has been coupled with Urquiola’s Mesh Table and colourful Roll Chairs from Kettal.
