An exciting new house from Wolveridge Architects. “With excellent views to the north and south and a conscious motivation to avoid the east/west outlooks, this project evolved as a series of interconnected and robustly finished containers. Each prescribed to a rigid set of rules and the relationship and spaces between containers becoming essential to the program and to the life of the building.
The robust mass of the buildings is intended to be offset by the expression of finely considered detail and proportion.It is the private spaces created in between that allow natural ventilation and light, intimate outlooks, and privacy for the occupants, a place to call home.”
This house was shortlisted in the annual RAIA housing awards, was featured in Habitus Magazine #20, and also Houses August 2014 also voted in the ‘top Twenty most popular projects 2013’ Arch Daily
Testimonial from Jerry Wolveridge:
“It was a pleasure to receive your email, thank you very much. As it was a pleasure to work alongside you in Torquay.
For a long time, I’ve felt the MBA use the term Master way too loosely. In my view it should be a privilege and given to that select few, such as yourself, who I would describe as real Master Builders, craftsman in fact who give credit to the building industry through outstanding capabilities and experience.
I’ll always remain astonished at how simply it appeared to come together, but I know how complex this house was to construct, which is a credit to you. Only a very small handful of capable and experienced builders such as yourself have I come across who could carry out what you have achieved here.
So, after all, it’s a team effort, congratulations on producing such a beautiful building and keeping it cool all the way through.
I really hope we pick up more work on the west coast, as much for the opportunity to work together again.”
