Silver Street House
South Fremantle, WA, Australia
Silver Street House by EHDO Architecture has been a labour of love for the owner who built it over five years to a high level of detail.
This beautiful residential home was designed for a semi-retired couple and occasionally their adult children to maximize the family dynamic among beautiful surroundings in South Fremantle.
EHDO’s response to the site was met by its challenges: a sewer easement dividing the site and long elevations facing east/west. Design moves developed these constraints as advantages making the performance and liveability of the home special and unique.
Maintaining required access to the easement, trapezoidal forms straddle this diagonal line. In-between these two volumes is a bonus link space expanding adjacent spaces, a space used to transform a contained home to a semi-public exhibition space as required.
The upper level bridges ground components. Projections of this mass shade the ground level, minimising need for mechanical cooling. Thickness of walls and window reveals are enhanced by deep box awnings offering further protection from the summer sun and privacy from neighbors for its occupants.
The success of this project relied on a close, collaborative engagement with the client and continued support by EHDO during construction.
Ultimately this beautiful South Fremantle home has become the perfect location for a semi-retired couple to begin the next stage of their lives.
