Architecture Design of Goodtown House

Description About The Project

Goodtown House designed by Alexandra Buchanan Architecture sits gently on the site where subtle level changes navigate the landscape and the orientation. This house located on a spacious site with the airy and greeny nature.

The introduction of a courtyard between the bedrooms and the living spaces was vital to allow the internal spaces to orientate inwards and find visual relief in the green spaces and view corridors framed by the building. Also, the strip of garden between the house and Grieve Road was an important design consideration in allowing visual privacy and acoustic buffering from the roadway.

Furthermore, this house presents large over sailing roof eaves to the North to create the essential shading over the clerestory windows below. The clerestory windows above the doors will encourage natural airflow and the ingress of soft light throughout the living areas. Indeed, an interplay of levels, interconnected internal living spaces and the relationship to the exterior. Also, create a multi faceted yet private living experience.
