About this client’s build

Situated on a site with its long axis north-south, the brief demanded that primary living spaces made the most of a flowing rear yard space within the northern sun. The front façade articulation techniques ensure the dwelling has great visual depth from the street through the alignment of key material volumes, dedicated glazing and shading projections.

The building envelope narrows and somewhat closes down through the centre of the site where the preference is for service / utility spaces before opening back up again for the primary spaces of the home to connect to the external site features.
