George Street North
Project Cost $500,000- $700,000
This striking modern interpretation of a red brick home asserts itself in the streetscape. The timber entry breezeway built of Victorian Ash timber enables northern light into the side elevation. The home repeats the timber detail through the breezeway canopy and window blades to build a common material language and blur the boundary of interior and exterior space.
The home bursts with features such as a Wilsonart Traceless kitchen, blackbutt timber floorboards, a corner window to the master bedroom and Astra Walker bronze tapware throughout this stylish home.
Despite the tight, west facing orientation, there is a masterful play of light due to the clever design of the home, which maximises light penetration into the living areas, overcoming the challenging orientation.
Passive design considerations creating cross ventilation, screening and large eaves were integrated to counter the dark façade. Our design and construction teams use Revit, a 3D BIM software, to digitally model each home ensuring maximum shading for each specific site.
Heavy Earthwool insulation has been used in the internal and external walls, mid-floor and ceiling, helping thermal performance, sound absorption and a reduction in energy bills.
All of the exposed timber used on the façade of the home was sustainably sourced from a certified manufacturer within Australia.
