A Pair House

Completed 2017

A pair of houses designed for a growing multigenerational family. The simple and restrained design of the houses provides a backdrop for a quiet family life and reflects a desire for comfort and tranquility. Parallel metal clad volumes containing well-proportioned private spaces cantilever over timber-lined communal spaces below, with extensive timber screening providing privacy and shade.  Off-form concrete and timber provide a robust material palette that will wear well over time – suitable for a house that will be well-looked after for generations to come.
