Architecture Design of Parkside Residence

Description About The Project

Parkside Residence designed by Ashley Halliday, takes it’s cues from the adjacent 1880’s Villas – form, scale, set backs, roof profiles – a simple, contemporary palette of complimentary materials and finishes introduced. The brief was to create a comfortable and contemporary new single level family home that nurtures and connects. But a key challenge was how to nestle a contemporary new home into a conservative heritage street.

Then the strategy was to reference the surrounding stone villas by introducing a sympathetically scaled, and proportioned gabled pavilion facing the street. Stripped back to its core elements, the gable respectfully addresses the surrounding context in form, roof profiles, datum heights and setbacks. The street facing pavilion has large operable windows and screens encouraging interaction with the garden and streetscape beyond, reflecting the clients desire to interact with their neighborhood. This is reinforced with a front fence that uses slim steel frames to provide a subtle distinction between the public and private realms, whilst encouraging that sense of community.

Once insides, the interiors such as living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom designed meticulously and delicately. Indeed, this house stands out as a brave contemporary – yet – considerate addition to a conservative heritage suburb.

The Architecture Design Project Information:

The two gabled pavilions of this Parkside Residence sit perpendicular to one another, pulled apart and inflected to create interstitial spaces between that provide veiled views in and out. Whilst creating pockets for the surrounding landscape to infiltrate and break down the mass of the house.
