Massive Family Residence in Australia Displaying Intriguing Architecture Features

Advertising

Elizabeth Street Residence was envisioned and implemented by the creative team at Jackson Clements Burrows and is located in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Especially developed for a large family, the massive building meets the living needs of its inhabitants, while also displaying intriguing design features. According to the architects, “the approach on the site was to find a solution that could be contextual, but also challenge the default rear-yard configuration of the typical suburban dwelling.

This was achieved by dividing the site lengthwise to create a parallel format of ‘house’ versus ‘landscape’. The primary form of the dwelling has been aligned on the southern boundary, enabling the habitable spaces to take full advantage of a panoramic, north-facing garden“. The interiors of the residence are spacious and elegant, characterize by extensive use of wood. Floor to ceiling windows ensure an optimum indoor-outdoor connection, especially in the generously-sized living room, where glazed doors slide open to let in the fresh garden breeze.

    Especially developed for a large family,the building looks elongated. I would argue about the shape of the building. It might be too elongated from the top.
