This modern house sits effortlessly within its urban fringe context.
The long and narrow urban site provides multiple spaces that cater for different times of the day, week and year. The screened timber pod acts as a clear juxtaposition to its city fringe street which is predominately lined with early 20th century villas, post war Californian Bungalows and non-descript 1970’s brick and tile buildings.
The vertical cedar batten screen envelops the upstairs façade of the building. This not only adds a unique characteristic to the building but also provides privacy and shading from the sun without compromising the views.
The small dwelling was fitted with open interior spaces. Windows were strategically placed to enhance light access and open up the space.
