Come and see this amazing award winning house by Jackson, Clements, Burrows Architects.
A unique battle-axe block buried amongst its neighbours - a secret garden, a hidden house. This presented both an opportunity and challenge - tranquillity and seclusion from the street whilst balancing occupant amenity and privacy from its 11 surrounding neighbours.
The vision was to create a simple, robust and durable home for the family's evolving needs. A place for calm (and chaos) set amongst a secret garden.
The resulting reductive two storey response allowed the best balance between program, built form and landscape. Living spaces are on the ground floor and bedrooms on the first level.
The house is designed to be passively environmentally responsive so as to minimise energy use and running costs and maximise occupant comfort and amenity.
