  • House in Elizabeth Bay - Bowral50 Brick | designplace
    It was to be a modern house beautifully crafted with excellent materials and finish but with an ancient air The plan of the three level house with its wide central hallway inner courtyard and double height verandah to the north gives visual transparency and connection to the rich surrounds allows cross ventilation and offers protection from sun and rain But most importantly it allows a real sense of enclosure and privacy The project also included the integration of a heritage listed boatshed a pool and facilities and significant landscape works Although Elizabeth Bay is full of fine brick buildings the choice of brick was driven primarily by the aim to build a structure of a timeless quality that would weather and age with dignity The primary architectural elements that define the house are insulated 320 mm thick loadbearing brick walls comprising two leaves of 110 mm brickwork separated by 50 mm of insulation and a 50 mm cavity They provide thermal mass and visual and acoustic privacy and have a visual weight and density that defines rooms both inside and out Importantly their warmth colour and character complement the other building materials and details I wanted the house to be an honest expression of the way it was built The loadbearing walls are of brick and so they are expressed inside and out I also wanted to visually diffuse the relationship between inside and out so we restrained the palette of materials used to brick timber and brass and they literally run everywhere The next layer of interior furnishings can work off this very retrained backdrop But it was a real challenge for everybody involved to get the tolerances dimensioning and setout of the brickwork such that this was possible Also critical was the mix of colours A great deal of planning and material handling was required so that the spread of colour and texture present in each palette of bricks was seamlessly integrated The slim 50 mm bricks were chosen because the proportion very subtly broke down the vertical scale of the structure and the walls The finer scale also allowed us to get a richer and denser mix into these sometimes three story monolithic elements The horizontal emphasis pushes the eye outward drawing in the external spaces and connections that are so important to the house The harbour pool and garden are drawn into the interior spaces Between the brick walls and forming the balance of the facade are beautiful western red cedar panels sometimes nine meters high They act as cladding window and furniture simultaneously providing for ventilation light view privacy and storage and services Beautiful brass timber steel and copper elements complement the brickwork and cedar Most of these elements and fixtures were custom designed for the project and fabricated by local contractors and tradespeople The house also includes the latest technology and environmental systems Water storage grey water recycling energy efficient heating and cooling systems lighting control and automation security access control and entertainment systems

  • Five Dock House - Bowral Dry Pressed Bricks | designplace
