We aimed to create a home which responded to its context but also maintained the privacy and internal separation required by a young family. The styling is dark and modern with an honesty of materials and spaces. Lighting is moody and soft complementing the home without oversaturating the spaces.
The design uses warm materials that respond to the semi-industrial context of the street. Textured face brick is celebrated through-out the design to bring earthy rawness to the internal spaces. A perforated Breezewall separates the entry space from the living spaces while still maintaining a filtered visual connection between the two.
The context has also influenced the location the outdoor and living spaces allowing them to feel connected to the street, without sacrificing privacy and amenity. Landscaping and automated drapes add layers of separation for these spaces and allow the users to moderate their connection with this busy social street.
