A house in Ararat

Art Deco House, AraratA first look this house in Ararat is a fairly conventional house with a pitched roof but the closer you look the more details emerge.

Firstly, the low wall around the property is constructed of several different coloured bricks. The house itself introduces a couple of other brick colours aswell.

Each of the windows is cut into the corners of the house.

The porch at the front door uses glass bricks to interesting effect, highlighting the stepped decoration between the brick pillars.

And then we have the chimneys. Rendered white slabs against the creams of the bricks of the house and the tiles of the roof. Stepped higher and wider in the centre compared to each side, a design echoed in the three vertical lines on the front of each chimney.

House, Ararat
