CARPENTER

A big tree, an old house, a new family with a desire for human interaction and connectedness.  A curved feature clad in timber offset with a titanium box, voids and glass walls that open onto refined outdoor spaces.  Smiling clients … and the project is a success.

Type:  Alterations + Additions

Location:  Brighton

Client:  Andrew + Kate

Build:  Sier Constructions

Located on a busy road in Brighton, the focus of this house for a young family was always going to be away from the street.  Insular, introspective and private spaces of the existing home transition into the open light filled spaces of the additions promoting human interaction and family togetherness.

 

A curved feature clad in timber frames a view into a small backyard with a very large tree and is offset with a simple titanium box housing 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a living area, spaces that will cater for expanding family life.

 

Voids connect the first floor with the active zones of the ground floor and glass operable walls open onto refined outdoor spaces.

 

Dig Design’s work challenges the form of a traditional weatherboard bungalow in Brighton through the use of simple forms and beautiful materials featuring spotted gum and titanium zinc.

 

A large tree is located to the rear of the block and in many ways the scale of the additions were determined by the tree that was in, then out when it looked lost, and back in again after it was saved by an arborist.
