From The Architect

The client brief was arranged into a series of layers and experiences – located according to priority for privacy, views, protection from harsh weather, access to natural light and breezes, and the display of a growing art collection. The concept was developed to generate interesting relationships; firstly, with the expansive views and climate (freedom and a link to nature); and secondly, a framed outlook to intimate gardens and artworks (connection to people and experiences). The key to the project’s success is the agility of the terrace as a filter between primary living spaces and the outdoors; sliding glass panels and an operable roof are configured to expand or contract in response to the elements – a 365-day useable space and heart of the home. A north facing strip window lights up the 8m high entry gallery; a volume that unfurls playfully to introduce the sky and emphasise relaxed coastal living.

Arthouse Swanbourne by Hartree + Associates Architects is nominated for the 2019 Western Australian Architecture Awards – for more information on award-nominated project and the awards night held on the 28th of June, please visit the Western Australian Architecture Awards website.
