A House for Grandma is a pavilion within the landscape. The spaces are modest in size yet comfortable for functional contemporary living. The spaces provide a neutral canvas for the display of furniture, objects and of memories collected over a lifetime; there is room for something old, something new and others are yet to be included.
Within a constrained footprint, A House for Grandma explores spatial quality. The narrow entry hallway is blurred & forms a dedicated but flexible bedroom. The facade peels away to provide curated views to the landscape beyond. The light filled living space with oversized raking ceiling to clerestory glazing, forming a void over, feels larger than its floor area would suggest.
A modern day ‘Granny flat’, it is a housing typology that provides housing options available to mutiple generations within the family as well accommodating family from overseas or as a commercial proposition for the owner.
