jackson clements burrows architects: harold street residence

situated on a corner site amongst its single-storey neighbors dating from the victorian era, australian firm jackson clements burrows architects has designed the ‘harold street residence’ that responds to its contextual cues with a contemporary twist. the ground level houses the public services where the inhabitants will spend the majority of their time, while the upstairs contains the more intimate bedrooms and work areas. a large garden running longitudinally through the site occupies almost half of the plot and links all programmatical elements through the exterior.

 

the pressed red-brick facade resonates with the surrounding aesthetic and produces a steadfast street-side presence. areas of offset stacking in the masonry work create semi-transparent sections in the outer partitions that screen daylight and improve cross ventilation. the private northern half of the site reveals the folding nature of the floor plan and material characteristics, with atypically large glass panes, spatial voids and zinc roof panels that extend over to the vertical enclosures. the twisting form of the canopy brings the scale down at the entry and transitions seamlessly into the higher second floor with an outdoor terrace. wood members surface the ceiling, contrasting the hard tile flooring, with white walls reflecting light throughout the interior spaces.
