Event Details

Porebski Architects 

In July we will be visiting a brand new house in one of the most picturesque suburbs of Sydney, namely Castlecrag.   

'After a visit to the Maley House in Castlecrag, designed by Andre Porebski in 1973  the owners engaged Porebski Architects to design a new house in the same suburb.'    

The Gillespie house responds to its location within the Walter Burley Griffin conservation area, north-south orientation and planning to address environmental issues, while addressing key issues that the client wanted resolved – namely privacy, solar access, dampness and a relaxed home to live in.

The final result is a house with strong horizontal forms that sits on a stone podium and a simple palette of concrete brick, off-form concrete, timber and copper. The design is centred around a courtyard which creates an L-shaped single room plan. This has not only created a lovely private outdoor area that faces north but also allows solar access to the living areas of the house, which would otherwise not be possible due to the site orientation.

The Gillespie House is a contemporary architectural manifestation of the Walter Burley Griffin house. A playful interplay between outdoor and indoor spaces keep the space relaxed. And a simple, layered palette, gives the house an elegant exterior which sits modestly and in proportion with the surrounding area.
