G House - Sydney

G House - Sydney | Container Architecture | Scoop.it

A typical eastern Suburbs harbour view site; long, narrow and sloping away from the road toward harbour and Manly views. As the house is set lower than the road with living spaces opening back toward the street, a lightweight timber screen filters street views and creates privacy, yet allows light and ventilation to the private living spaces. The house has two living levels; the primary living level opens out toward an elevated view and the lower living area flows out to a pool deck and private courtyards. The sleeping level is positioned on the top level, providing privacy, quiet and commanding views. Our primary design generator was to link vertical and horizontal circulation through double and triple volume spaces and a dialog of floating planes and connected textural elements. Finished such as polished concrete floors internally and externally, tinted concrete bench tops, raw basalt, timber and steel are assembled in a contemporary composition to facilitate easy living and a seamless flow between inside and out.

Small House by Cooper Joseph Studio

Small House by Cooper Joseph Studio | Container Architecture | Scoop.it
The owners asked for an efficient, off-the-grid, house that would be one with their site. It is a “diamond in the rough”, a precisely detailed modern structure within a rustic, agricultural farm.

 

The 850 square-foot, one bedroom, structure is anchored to the steep hillside with a series of retaining walls and cascading exterior decks each linked to an interior space. This act of at once embracing the hillside and relating inside and outside at every level is an ambitious concept for such a small house yet the one least intrusive to the natural topography. The circulation directs you to the views while the fenestration protects from the hot southern sun in favor of soft northern light. The main interior stair skewers the levels along the predominant central concrete wall. The exterior is predominantly light-grey zinc expressed in horizontal panels with articulated reveals running horizontally. Stained redwood is used for sunscreens and decking.
