Hampton House is a two-story contemporary house located in Hampton, Australia. Built in 2018, the house was designed by Architecture Works as a light-filled family home that would accommodate a family of five and cater to entertaining.
The home has been Heritage listed, requiring the original Edwardian weatherboard facade to remain intact. The contemporary addition to the rear of the house features white concrete forms to reflect the existing weatherboards, creating a sense of strength in the design and life of the dwelling. Challenges included meeting the expectations of the clients and integrating a modern concrete and glass form within the constraints of Heritage guidelines. The house extends over three levels and is connected by a central helical stair. An overhanging roof provides shelter to the internal spaces and creates an intimate outdoor living area, while external motorized venetian blinds allow the owners to control the amount of light and privacy.
Situated in the coastal suburb of Hampton, the house boasts stunning views of the bay to the West.
