Centennial Tree Residence by Wallflower Architecture + Style:
“The proprietor needed external blank walls. Then speak continued to fixed screens. Centre courtyard for light and air. These summed up for them, the tangible facets of an ideal property, a protective enclosure of solitude.
Introversion has a damaging connotation in a culture in which getting social and outgoing are prized over all else. But what is withdrawal to some is energizing for those who thrive on self-reflection and contemplation daily life is discovered inside.
That fortitude and power is visually provided expression by 100 year outdated frangipani tree virtually found within, centred in a big grassed courtyard surrounded with water. The tree was provided a new lease of lifestyle having been rescued from a Holland Street website slated for new improvement.
Real to the owners’ needs, the facade is entirely sealed off in most areas, and veiled by fixed timber screening in other folks. The purity of intention to internalise final results in a purity of architectural elevation on 3 sides there is no yard, opening, back of property, but a pebbled path among a rhythmic timber screen and a lush wall of polyalthias. Visually, the aesthetics exclude both physically and psychologically, but the timber screens along the periphery of the 1st storey enable breezes to comb via, refreshing the sheltered corridors and living spaces. The central court encourages this, acting as each a light and air nicely. During the day as the environment modifications, the breezes shift, the home breathes. The only region where the timber screens can be opened is between the second storey master bedroom and the court. Motors silently fold the screens away, linking the court to the bedroom.
The central air and light nicely is essential to the experience and enjoyment of the residence by means of the day as the light shifts, various walls, passages, are actually witnessed in a various light, or shade or shadow. The centennial tree awakes, basks, and rests and the surrounding spaces share that experience. The aesthetic experience is intensified probably since there are no distractions from the globe outdoors Even the globe outside is acquired as the sky over is framed by the court and varieties component of the spatial composition. The elemental reduction of sky over, water surrounding an island of grass below, all axially centred by the stolid tree distills for the owners what existence can and should be a re-target on the essentials getting pure, easy, and celebrated.”
