This house has a dual purpose. First and foremost it is home to a young family, but it also needed to accommodate a structural engineer’s office, one of our trusted consultants. Each of these needed to have a clear address, without one of the uses dominating the other.
There was also a balancing act with making sure that the office space was able to be open and comfortable while privacy was afforded to the backyard to allow kids to play without feeling watched. The simple material palette reflects a modern beach shack, with sharp, clean cladding highlighted with natural timber that will develop a patina as it ages.
“My wife Alice and I have had the best possible experience working with Base Architecture to build our dream home. Base Architecture are the best in the industry. From the very first meeting we had they were amazing! The finished home is fantastic – our family love living in it and it’s actually brought us all closer together the way we interact in the spaces. I can’t recommend highly enough for people to work with Base Architecture no matter what their budget is.”
