The new residence for empty nesters is located within Unley, surrounded by villa-styled residences with a heritage overlay.
The building & garden draws inspiration from Japanese + mid-century influences and ecologically sustainable principles. The residence has a strong & unique presence within the streetscape but does not overpower its neighbours.
The client’s previous residence was designed around a series of pavilions based on home activities & in this design the pavilion approach has adopted a simpler format to suit the occupants.
The pavilions are surrounded by water+garden features, and as such the delineation between the outdoor & indoor spaces has been blurred.
The stone entrance wall anchors the residence to the streetscape, whilst the combination of light-weight cladding materials, large spans of glazing + sliding doors reinforce the lightness & openness of the internal spaces.
Water plays an important role in the design of the residence & garden for its visual and relaxing qualities for occupants & visitors alike.
