2016 – AIA Newcastle Architecture Awards – Winner – Urban Eclectic House (Residential Architecture – Houses (New)
Urban Eclectic House gives a nod to the urban-industrial context whilst transitioning scale to the adjacent residences. Unashamedly raw, the material palette combines brickwork with timber, colorbond and cement to create a home where internal and external spaces share the same material palette and where natural ventilation and light stream in throughout the day.
Whilst Urban Eclectic House is rich in material and volume, it succeeds not through its bold form and warm pallet, but through its careful zoning and connection to its context; embracing the requirement of the people who live there, whilst acknowledging its past, present and future.
