I am writing this follow up email on a house in Perth, Western Australia that was completed November 2011. It deals with the construction of complex geometry whilst working in the confines of a domestic program and function. There is no referencing to strict modernist typologies, and no attempt to demonstrate the existing suburban house typology. By way of its’ integration to the site, the house provides a playful alternative to contemporary living.
The unification of geometry and program is the driving force behind the project. The house ebbs and flows throughout the site, creating changes in roof height to provide intimacy in the bedrooms, and openness in the living spaces. The roof guides the program of the house in a dynamic relationship to incorporate the workings of a modern dwelling.
Nigel Westbrook, a scholar from The University of Western Australia, was in attendance for the opening party.
