Hawkstone St - steelehouse architecture | ArchiPro

Adrian and Alice were after an addition to encourage an outdoor lifestyle for their young family, connecting the exterior to the interior through a series of overlapping spaces. Together, we decided that it was essential to capitalise on the northern lot orientation with a protruding second floor of kids rooms, creating shade for the alfresco deck while reducing the impact of building area on yard size. We used a simple palette of materials to incorporate a few key design features: a circular window, perforated stair and colourful tiling. The added volumes and their cladding playfully define distinct forms and a respectful relationship with the existing building. The result is simple but thoughtful arrangement that reflects the nature and lifestyle of the family.
