The need to house unique artwork combined with opportunities for memorable entry experiences, framed views and varied garden connections in the pursuit for joyful, practical and surprising spaces.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathA new screened carport cradles and softens the proportions of the retained frontage and becomes integral to the arrival journey, leading to entry into an intimate courtyard at the centre of the house. This courtyard is continually re-experienced – a pivotal space between public, family and private areas.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathEast-west orientated galleries buffer kid’s areas from living zones, provide natural cross ventilation and welcome differing qualities of natural light during the day. The cross section of the house continually compresses and expands as it gently terraces down the site, level with the garden. Sustainable passive performance is optimised through zoning and orientation, solar power and a 20,000L watertank add to these measures.Save this picture!Floor PlanViews are deliberately framed – blade walls are embraced to house artwork, direct and refrain from specific outlooks and provide a sense of enclosure. Long sightlines are sparingly used to provide only glimpses beyond, maintaining the drama of experiencing each space upon arrival.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe little surprises – touches of brass, leather, steel and discovered gems of colour are both considered and cherished. The house is photographed as it is lived in – full of family “stuff” from daily life on display, not meant for hiding away. This gallery for living in has an abundant and experiential richness which cannot be fully described with drawings and photos aloneSave this picture!© Shannon McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessKAAN Architecten Designs New Building for the University of TilburgArchitecture NewsElizabeth Tower and Big Ben to Undergo RenovationsArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeBower ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneAustraliaPublished on May 01, 2016Cite: “Kate’s House / Bower Architecture” 01 May 2016.
