Phase: Under Construction

Set in a suburban context the dwelling is defined by a series of experiences, all varying in scale, texture, materiality and light. The scale of the house from the street is deceivingly small compared to the sense of scale of the internal spaces. The understated entry opens up to an internal courtyard and garden where guests are greeted. The house has a series of garden courtyards to ensure the clients can have the full benefits of connection to garden.

The bedrooms and utility spaces are placed on an East-West axis along the southern boundary with considered but more simplified materials. Whilst the main living space has expressed and detailed hardwood structure, and large spans of glazing to view the pool, garden and golf course. The roof of this living space folds in two directions; up to the North to allow solar passive gain and down to the East with the view of the golf course. Materials of custom Ironbark cladding, locally sourced Bluestone, natural render finish and Blackbutt plywood allow for an exploration of suburban coastal materiality with varying light and shadows constantly changing inside and out through the day and season.
