House of Parts - Architecture

The project is located on the east coast of Australia near the beaches of Sydney. Designed for a
young family with four children under the age of 6 the planning was generated by a need for growth,
flexibility, diversity and the evolution of spatial function over time.
The communal areas are all connected through non-restrictive pathways with visual connections
between each space and each level achieved through internal courtyards and open yet spatially and
materially defined planning strategies. The swimming pool is designed to reflect and refract sunlight
into adjacent living spaces and cool warm summer breezes whilst creating an internal outlook in the
evening. The dining room acts as the heart of the home with panoramic outlook to the swimming
pool. The desire for the occupants to dine at a round table drove the form of the dining space and
the stair configuration which accentuates the circular form and provides a dramatic circulation path
through the home.
The design explores a complex range of rich spatial qualities; from refuge and cave-like spaces
through to elevated tree house-like spaces. A high priority is placed on sustainability in terms of both
the embodied energy of the project with re-use of stone, brick and timber from the demolition of the
original structure in the new works, to the minimal running costs of the project achieved with a large
photovoltaic system, rainwater storage and a wind powered generator.
Throughout the project there are materially dramatic transitions between multiple indoor and outdoor
spaces as a response to prevailing and local breezes and the movement of the sun throughout
the day and the seasons. The project seeks to heighten the living experiences for the occupants
whilst reducing running costs with natural light serving a dual role to improve both thermal
performance and spatial experience.
