A Not So Suburban Suburban

House Frances

Long Division

On a typical suburban site, the response was anything typical, and the whole site seen as a canvas for living. Designed to maximise northerly light, the modest house demonstrates that luxury is not about size, but the relationships between spaces, both internally and from inside to out.

Rethinking the suburban lot

This is a house of three parts: a central living and public space bookended by sleeping quarters. Elongating the plan lengthways down the site, creates garden connections for every room, a flowing floor plan and greater privacy for all the occupants in residence.
