As part of the 2021 ArchiTeam Conference - Keynote Antony Martin will take you for an insiders tour through the design of these bespoke homes. Both properties are located within 10 mins of each other and are a 30 min walk if you are interested.
10am - 10:40am
House for Eva
Linden Street, Brunswick East
Our client, Eva, is a single mum and business owner she possessed special determination to build a home for herself and her daughter. She wanted a long term home and one that would also house her business and provide rental income through an incorporated ground floor granny flat. And all on a site of only 90m2.
The East Brunswick site was formerly the rear garden of the adjoining property and measures just eight metres wide by 11 metres deep. Site size was not the only limitation of the site, a power pole in the middle located on the very narrow footpath further constrained the buildable envelope. The site is located within a designated activity zone making it possible to propose greater than usual site coverage and a three storey design while still meeting the overlooking and overshadowing clauses of Rescode.
11:30am - 12:10pm
West Bend House
McLachlan Street, Northcote
Located on the site of Northcotes first home, which predated the road network in the area, West Bend House is a family home on a large but narrow site that flows down to the Merri Creek. The owners are repeat clients and friends so we had the unique opportunity of translating the dynamics of this family into a design for their home that makes the best use of orientation, connection to the garden and views. Conceived not as a singular volume but rather an interconnected village of buildings each suited to the specific needs of individual family members or how they come together as a whole.
