bourne road residence . architectural form

developing the built form as a single object, the architecture for this new house becomes a frame for the outdoor spaces, the architecture a backdrop for the family’s engagement with the garden.

stripping the building language back to white rendered planes, the front façade acts as a canvas, capturing the shadows and reflections of the large oak street tree.

in contrast to the modest and simple façade, on entry, spaces unfold, culminating in the main living, cooking and dining area.

the internal garden is located within the centre of the house, and one must continually move through it and experience it; not only guests coming to the public areas of the house, but the occupants as they move from the public living areas to the private areas of sleeping and bathing.
