An architecture that breathes simplicity and modern living with a touch of modernism.
The concept for our architectural solution centres on pushing this modernist language of floating horizontal and vertical planes for maximum connection to the external spaces through a local material palate of sandstone, timber, concrete, glass, landscape and water. The architectural strategy began with a dense reorganisation of the existing bungalow and precise removal of later unsympathetic additions to free the rear yard for seamless indoor / outdoor living, and to reorient the entry between the old and new wings. Grounded sandstone blade walls form strong horizontal organising elements, dancing around the retained palm trees, with the hearth and chimney the primary vertical element and structural device. A series of recycled timber roof planes float over these elements, defining the public living spaces below, admitting winter sun and omitting summer sun. The external rooms, backyard, landscape, garden and pool are extensions of the internal space, with vertical recycled timber blades concealing structure, providing privacy, sun shading and completing the composition.
