Hopewell Street Residence | W.I.M Architects

The Hopewell Street Residence was founded on the idea of creating a modern adaptation of the beach shack with functional spaces that could accommodate dynamic programmes for the owners.

The primary design was formed around two distinct wings with a connecting breezeway link across the levels. The wings are divided into both public and private realms and the programme is addressed through the various levels.

The materiality was to be raw and natural and in some layers blends with the natural environment/context.

The process involved a strong integration with both Engineer and Builder which through weekly site meetings, sketches after surfs and a buy in by all parties led to a high-end outcome with strong ensuing relationships between client, builder, and architect. The house is as much a representation of the client and builder as it is the architect.
