About the project
Designing a new home for a Client who is an engineer and an artist was always going to be a challenge…
However, our collaboration has worked well and a beautiful home has been designed that connects with the garden areas, takes advantage of the sun’s path through the sky and fully provides their requirements for how they want to live in the house.
Zones have been created inside that flow with the sun’s path and the time of day that the Client’s will be using those area, from early morning sun to the office and day lounge, to late evening sun to the evening lounge and external patio areas accessed via fully opening folding sliding doors.
A simple palette of timber cladding and brick with strong shapes creates a composition which is both contemporary and soft with low maintenance requirements.
