The using of concrete frame to a house is a type of construction that is very common to be used in modern houses with glass fences for pools. This strong frame will result a strong home and will be easy to be designed as a house with opened living or house with wide glass wall. This clear lines frame usually makes rectangular shape building or house with flat roof. This condition supports to decorate the house with straight line elements like wooden cladding, cement fiber panel exterior, and also lengthwise window frames that arranged horizontally.

This Australian studio built the house in the middle of luxuriant green landscape and leafy trees in Brisbane, Australia. This house contains by two level floors with an outdoor pool that is surrounded by glass fences for pools.

The living room also uses the same concept with sliding glass wall covered the room from the yard and a line of bamboo decoration at the opposite side that this room still use black stone tiles with black chairs decoration.
The same sliding glass wall and black stone tiles are also applied in the dining area. This space that overlooks to the green landscape is filled with black kitchen furniture with solid wooden kitchen table that is surrounded by black transparent fiber stools.
