Australia's Angophora House by Richard Cole Architecture

Australia's Angophora House by Richard Cole Architecture | Craftsman Architecture | Scoop.it

Angophora House was designed by Richard Cole Architecture, and it is located in Waverton, a suburb on the lower North Shore of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

“Built over an escarpment in a densely urbanised heritage conservation area in Waverton, the form of this house responds to the difficult site using the elements of cave, platform and canopy. On entering the house from the upper road, one passes through a curvaceous enclosing concrete wall with rooftop garden over.

Two platforms launch into the space of the valley, extending out from the anchoring escarpment. Insulated timber moveable walls transform the space from warm and enclosing to open and unimpeded. A sheltering timber lined roof opens to the north, falls in response to the slope of the land and captures framed views of adjacent Angophora trees.

The escarpment is retained, raw and open to the rooms of the lower ground floor. A dramatic lift takes the owners to the garage on the street below.”

"Utilizing the elements of Cave , Platform, and Canopy"  I haven't heard that one before, but I like it! Very nice open design

5 Biggest Bang for Your Buck Home Improvements

5 Biggest Bang for Your Buck Home Improvements | Craftsman Architecture | Scoop.it
Almost immediately after buying and moving into our current house in 2007, we began renovating it. We knew, as devout DIYers, that home renovations would be our constant companion, because we chose to buy a house that was built in 1961 and never updated. That meant harvest gold in the kitchen, a blue tub and [...]

Quince's insight:

Nice Craftsman style covered entry.  Paired wood columns over masonry bases with exposed wood truss and rafters.  Masonry and stained wood exterior add a sense of strength and warmth. I really appreciate the extended gable and hip beams in this design.

Quince's insight:

Masculine craftsman style paired columns add strength, shadows, and a real definition of space to the front porch.  The exposed rafter tails also echo the craftsman style and add rich texture.  I'd love to see the stained wood theme applied to the window and door trim here which would balance the colors and add warmth to the rest of the exterior.
