Designed and built for an owner who wanted a small home that made the most of light and space on a small block, this steel and timber-framed project employed efficient design and construction techniques to provide open plan living over two levels. The upstairs bedroom, bathroom and study have deliberately been designed to take advantage of the views of the trees on the block while a downstairs bedroom and bathroom have been designed with the owner’s eventual ageing in mind. The high ceilinged living space opens directly to the north and uses cross ventilation, thermal massing and sun shading devices to achieve desired levels of thermal comfort.
Now completed, the home is a distinctive addition to the streetscape and has been affectionately dubbed the boathouse by the locals in a response to its colour and material.
The Sussex Street residence achieved the Architecture Award in the AIA WA Architecture Awards 2016 for Small Project Architecture, the project features in local and international press.
