Kangaroo Point House explores ideas of refuge and exposure in a tight inner-city context. There was a desire from our clients for the house to be able to be an active participant in the joy and excitement of the pre- and post-game pedestrian commute from the Pineapple Hotel to The Gabba whilst being able to retreat away from this if need be. Similarly, within the site there are moments that have a sense of performance, and moments of being able to feel entirely protected deep in the plan whilst still being only a couple of meters away from the ankles of boozy passersby.
The ground floor plan of this project considers the site as a cohesive whole, seeding the architecture into the furthest extents of the site, and bringing the garden inside the building as a two storey void allowing ventilation and dappled light deep into the plan.
