Australian architectural company Shaun Lockyer Architects has developed the Wilden Street Residence.
Created in 2012, this modern day, 4,166 square foot house in Paddington, Australia, boasts admirable craftsmanship.
Wilden Street Residence by Shaun Lockyer Architects:
“The Wilden Street residence is a progressive and ambitious transformation of a derelict pre-war cottage on a beautiful web site in Paddington, Brisbane. Regardless of the steep landscape, the house nestles into the internet site offering comprehensive privacy and a leafy, flat back yard that enjoys north-east facing city views. The property itself provides unprecedented area and volume to attain a generous family house, rarely feasible on a “small lot” site.
The layout explores “chiselled” varieties in the architectural expression and interior resolution which consequence in warm and dynamic interior volumes that are flooded with light from over. The craftsmanship of the house is one of its greatest attributes with a timeless and seamless execution of joinery, cabinetry and detail.
The emphasis on indoor and outside living culminates in a double height outside residing space that frames city views and connects to the garden and dramatic pool. The rear of the house provides a somewhat sudden statement in the type of a 3 dimensionally expressed timber façade that punctuates the end of the house and also is made up of the master suite.
This is an ambitious residence that was created possible via a excellent connection among consumer, architect and builder, the good quality of which is manifest in each detail.”
