Property with Screens by ADX Architects:
“The existing semi-detached house was a 30 year old house that had stood the check of time. Our consumers approached us for a reconstruction of the existing house- with the intention to cater for their family consisting of the couple and their 2 young young children. From the start off, our quick was not to maximize the buildable region.
The loved ones appreciated the outside and the greenery in front of the house was to be preserved. It was a play area the youngsters would most appreciate on an elevated land a couple of steps above the car porch. In rethinking the use of the spaces, we sought to make the indoor spaces practical whilst enhancing them with a connection to the outdoors.
The ground floor public regions have been “opened up” by demolishing the enclosing walls and enhancing organic light and ventilation with full height glass doors. A generously spacious timber patio outside of the residing area was proposed to let the living room to extend outdoors.
A textured featured wall continues the dialogue from the inside to the outside and efficiently blurs the boundaries.The outcome is a living area that is vibrant and airy. Stepping up to the dining spot, the space for dining is similarly allowed to spill outwards with an extension of a outdoor timber deck – generating a romantic area for right after hours relaxation following a family members gathering.
The roof was redesigned to contain a series of skylights over the straight flight of stairs to the 2nd storey. A generous family members location greets one on the second storey. where a lush outdoor planter (which the Owners had a free-hand picking the plant mix) spans the complete length.
The planter is accessible by big sliding aluminum glass doors, and properly brings in organic light and greenery to the upper storey.
The planter also is noticeable from the common bath to the household location and stretches to peak into the master bathroom. The master bedroom is positioned in the front of the home.
We developed the balcony room in front of the huge bedroom with a more sensitive touch akin to a “sky patio” with a series of sliding timber screens. The Owners have been able to alter their placement in accordance to their preferences for lighting and privacy.”
