Architecture Design of Birch Tree House

Description About The Project

Birch Tree House designed by H&E Architects, with the design is reflective of the original late – Victorian Italianate style. Indeed, the designer’s approach located living areas to the Northwest – to take advantage of the most favorable aspect. The living space divided by a carefully crafted stair of steel stringers and timber treads and which curiously springs from a block of pink granite (forming the bottom tread).

In addition to this, the kitchen – set deep in the living space and centrally within the house – remains connected to the living area but gesturally separated from it by the stair. In addition to this, the entire living space flanked by a frameless South – lit skylight which punctuates the majestic rigor of a beautifully constructed off – form concrete soffit.

On the other hand, the site design means landscape integrated within the house form. This was a challenge on such a narrow site but was an important element of the client’s brief. The success of the integration lends a freshness and welcoming calm as well as privacy. Indeed, the landscape punctuated with feature elements such as a dwarf deciduous birch tree – very much a sculptural element that naturally marks change seasons.

The Birch Tree House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: Situated in the heart of Annandale’s heritage precinct, the existing house held a single – story frontage on a narrow lot. The Southeast, street – facing, aspect was in reasonable condition – reflective of the original late – Victorian Italianate style. The rear, Northwest – facing elements had been significantly altered by an unremarkable modern two – story addition that was in poor repair. The ambitious brief of the Birch Tree House called for a contemporary but respectful reinvigoration of the original areas and a complete reinvention of the rear.
