Brighton I

An efficient family house which relishes
opportunities presented by its simple form to surprise and engage.




On a small square shaped site, the design response identifies the need to avoid building to boundary, maximising site setbacks to create a landscaped buffered layer around the perimeter of the house, with varied garden connections from within.

Private open space is maximised to the northern streetscape frontage, with an open carport that can double as an alfresco area. Floating screens create sunshading and privacy to first floor and living areas. Internal volumes are varied with a central living void that allows daylight and natural ventilation throughout.
