ARCHITECT’S STATEMENT

THE GARDEN

The Garden is a single storey, four bedroom, residence with a central “garden” courtyard opening off all main family and living areas.

This design suits a normal suburban site and is particularly useful in its suitability with properties on the south side of the street, that is with a north facing front yard.

The courtyard design allows sunlight penetration into the centre of the home creating large, light filled, warm and inviting living areas.

The living room in particular with its positioning between the courtyard and the front garden would be a delightful space in the daytime and suitable for a home theatre space if required.  The children’s bedroom zone is self contained and removed from the master bedroom area for privacy.

Sliding glass doors enhance garden views and open the living areas out to the courtyard facilitating outdoor entertainment.

The GARDEN has been designed as a sleek contemporary building with sweeping roof forms and a distinctive architectural treatment.
