This Cottesloe home attempts to heighten the users'
experience of a common suburban block. Floor-to-ceiling
glazing, exaggerated ceiling heights, a north-south
transparency, large fish pond and stage-like deck create
the impression of boundary-to-boundary living spaces. The
scale and proportion of the rooms, in combination with
these elements, provides the desired sense of place. Use
of concrete, stone, timber, glazing and copper forms the
contemporary palette. A clean, raw, yet refined, aesthetic
was the reward for intensive detail consideration, combined
with the client's trust and patience. rsarchitects.com.au.
HOFMAN AND BROWN ARCHITECTS
AWARD The Marshall Clifton Award for Residential Architecture -- Houses. SPONSOR Scoop Publishing.
"We want you to re-invent the Yallingup holiday house, create a retreat from the everyday, a destination in itself.. . a striking,
sophisticated 'bunker'." That was the brief for this 2009sqm site in the South West. The design intent was to create a private
retreat with a resort ambience to suit a family with two children and their friends -- a house with a di erence in the luxury
holiday rental market. Linear in plan, every room has a northern outlook, each space separated by rammed-earth blade walls.
The aim was to enjoy a connection with the adjacent bushland, with a protected north-east outdoor room, complete with
plunge pool and outdoor cinema. The materials palette was chosen for its robustness, ease of maintenance, environmental
performance and local flavour. The grey, stabilised rammed-limestone walls combine with waxed dado plaster, polished
concrete, aluminium, glass and stone to form a restrained, but textural, language. hofmanandbrown.com.au.
