“The purpose of this Design and Construct project was to provide a modest home including a granny flat. An illusion of space within the narrow 339 square meter lot was created through the use of two garden courtyard spaces connected by the living area using extensive commercial laminated glazing and passive solar design. The east and western masonry elements ensure privacy and tranquility within its busy urban context.

The local Subiaco vernacular is reflected by the use of a simple white contemporary gable form contrasted with the woven red brick screen wall which creates a vibrant dynamic to the existing streetscape.”
