Golden Elm House | Khab Architects

Golden Elm House is a forever home, set up for family well-being and adaptability over time.

This project celebrates a large Golden Elm tree that is special to both the site and the people. With an intent to open to the Elm and rear garden, we respectfully reorganised some of the existing house, connected the previously disconnected basement to the ground level, and created a garden wing for the kids that hugs the side of the block and climbs up the hill alongside the Elm.

The new Kid’s Wing has adaptive spaces for the children that open and close in various ways to suit levels of interaction, from which the children can see both the magical tree, and the flight their dad pilots, landing on the horizon.

Golden Elm House is a dynamic family home that honours the original house and opens its arms to the magical Golden Elm.
