Architecture connected with its surroundings using minimal yet balanced forms that are sympathetic to the suburb’s history and also carry visual and functional appeals.
Our design meets the corner blocks with 2 welcoming frontages at both streets. Within the site, the house meanders and reaches over the garden containing resort style internal and external living areas.
The home carries two different functions across the two levels, the ground floor being the public domain, where multiple activities can take place simultaneously and in comfort and the upper floor providing more private family areas.
Wild Street House is a solar passive design with optimal orientation to maximise sun penetration during the winter months. Materials selected for the floor slab and walls are able to provide passive thermal storage. Whilst double glazing and external shading allow the owners to better control the internal environment in extreme weather. Hot water is delivered using an energy efficient heat pump, and a solar power system is connected back to the grid.
A pool is located to emphasize the cooling breezes in the warmer months and a cool respite for family and friends.
