SPRING ST house

New Residence

The design response to this narrow site in a street with strict planning controls was to create a building that starts small from the entrance and reaches up to the back (north) end of the site; views of the city are captured from a first floor deck. The zinc roof was designed from a folded plane tilted to the north to run parallel with the pedestrian sight line from the street. The spaces were then fitted into the created shelter.
