This residence in Legges Crescent is located within the traditional suburb of Prospect challenging the norm and identifies what is achievable through the expression of architecture and the expression of its clients personalities.
The presentation of this residence to the street is both artful and subtle. Polished white concrete slim line bricks adorn the facade. The planning and spatial sequence are precisely ordered to optimize space, belying the modest size of this residence. The diagrammatic simplicity of this residence disguises a complex orchestrated sequence within the two level arrangement and provides an efficient circulation within the core of the residence.
From the street and front door, visitors enter the residence to the view of the internal courtyard and the residence beyond. The children’s bedrooms are clustered around this courtyard which also accommodates the family, living, kitchen and dining spaces.
This residence is design to take full advantage of the view opportunities overlooking the city and mountain range in the distance.
This residence is both delightful and functional, private yet open, with visual connections throughout the building. It is a precise architecture without being overly fussy. It has the informality of a suburban residence, but with a measured sense of order and form.
