Status Update: This project is now under construction.
The design of the facade is simple in form and material, echoing the existing terraces on the street. Victorian pattern making, seen in the wrought ironwork and fretwork of existing Victorian terraces is given a contemporary approach by layering different patterns inherent in each material.
The traditional Victorian terrace front is dressed in clean cut white bricks featuring recessed soldier coursing and hit and miss brickwork. The hit and miss pattern on the boundary provides privacy screening whilst letting in light. The textures are further layered with a grooved soffit lining overhead and the use of plantation shutters to provide privacy from the street.
Vernacular brick and timber is contrasted at the rear with a smooth monolithic form enclosing a high cathedral space.
The interior is expressed with minimal detailing – flushed details and clean lines. A row of skylights over the gable end illuminates the kitchen and living areas.
