“Divided through the centre, the house draws light from above. A central skylight illuminates the bridging circulation spaces while a double height void running East to West provides fresh air and ventilation.
On a street primarily populated with semi-detached dwellings, this single dwelling house has been carefully designed to reflect its symmetrical neighbours. Elements of symmetry can be seen at first floor level. While the ground floor remains asymmetrical in use with the garage located to the East of the site, the building form has been intentionally divided creating a rhythm of solid and void similar to the front rooms and entry portico’s of a semi-detached development. Thoughtful consideration of materiality, colour and detail reflective of the surrounding streetscape was encompassed and deliberately reduced to a minimal palate creating a contemporary echo of its surroundings.”
Fluid, organic lines, natural material palette, emphasis on texture and playful exploration of solid and voids. Contemporary seaside living, Bondi Brise at Bondi Beach by Stafford.
