The site is on a corner in a leafy street. The area is quiet and would not feel out of place in a country town. The longest boundary faces north and abuts a generous grass nature strip.Save this picture!Floor PlanTypically the original timber Edwardian house was located towards the corner of the site. Out-buildings were removed and the new work sought to address privileged orientation and heighten the entry sequence.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe original house primarily accommodates the family’s own space; call it private. The new building is where day to day life is played out between kitchen and living. This public zone establishes a direct connection to the north lawn.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe roughcast rendered garden wall sits somewhere between landscape, sculpture and building. It is both garden edge and entry wall.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWithin the architecture there is a focus on texture. White paint reduces this palette of timber, steel, brickwork and roughcast render to texture alone. New and old are unified by this approach.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThere is nothing overly complex going on here, although it is a highly organised arrangement that allows everything to be in its place. This house is designed to be a beautiful backdrop for family life.Project gallerySee allShow lessHeydar Aliyev International Airport Baku / AutobanSelected ProjectsUsers Create the Color in this Super-Sized KaleidoscopeArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeKennedy Nolan ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionRefurbishmentHousesNorthcoteAustraliaPublished on August 04, 2014Cite: “Westgarth House / Kennedy Nolan Architects” 04 Aug 2014.
