From the architect: The new garden structure curates a series of sitting and landscape spaces, culminating in a raised pool platform that connects with distant views to Mt Coot-tha.
Anchored by a brick spine wall, the existing house is connected through a 6 metre masonry opening to the garden room creating a strong connection to the landscape room beyond.
Here, enclosed by a tapering roof, the spaces break down from terrace to landscape and pool, covered by a pergola structure.
Nubrick Artisan pressed bricks were selected for their soft colours and texture. The brick is used as a canvas to catch shadow and react quietly against the landscape. The light coloured masonry reacts to changes in the day and flush, stone rubbed mortar joints bring a stillness to the surfaces.
Evidence of the craftsman is throughout the project. From the heroic solidity of the main wall to the delicate, cantilevered brick seat and hand-rubbed surfaces, restraint tells a powerful story that allows the natural – light, shadow, reflection and landscape to dominate.
