Located on a leafy street in Shenton Park, Davidson Residence is a two-storey home for a young couple and their two kids. It features a bold, yet highly site-sensitive design which has become highly recognisable along the street. A simple and bold gesture subverts the vernacular tiled roof into a folding & curving shell which envelopes the home. The roof form both rakes & twists from the front to the rear, to open to the north and views, while tipping its height as the site falls with respect to the southern neighbour’s amenity. Roof tiles, burnished concrete floors, expressed glulam beams, painted white tumbled bricks, stained timber & a dynamic pattern of glass blocks draw from the established streetscape and its material context. In keeping with the architecture, the interiors are equally playful and reflective of the client’s quirky tastes.
