Waverley Street House by Klopper & Davis Architects
Situated in Perth, Australia, this contemporary residence was designed by Klopper & Davis Architects for a young growing family.
Description by Klopper & Davis Architects
A small 1920’s bungalow is converted to a large home for a young growing family. The design takes advantage of its location on a laneway to re-orient access and casual urban interaction towards this lane. This includes moving the front door around the house and off the lane, and providing a broad open window to the lane encouraging interaction with the neighbourhood.
Materials selected provide a contrast to the masonry existing home. Pacific Teak timber cladding internally and externally will weather and grey with age externally whilst maintaining its colour internally. The lightweight materials selected reference the ‘lean-to’ architecture that was often the first additions for this period of home and reinterprets this in a modern addition.
The master bedroom and office suite on the first floor directly connect with the downstairs via the void over the lounge and create an interconnected living space. Views to a park have been designed into the seated position of the office to allow vies to the distance when working.
