Private House, Unley

The brief for this project was to create a contemporary family home on a suburban plot in the heart of Unley, Adelaide.

The final scheme is the result of an exhaustive iterative design process with the client and City of Unley to provide the space required for a family home whilst also balancing the planning constraints of minimising the scale and volume of the building to the street edge.

The proposals consist of three levels of accommodation including living spaces, bedrooms, study, gym, wine room, swimming pool and spa.

All three levels of the house are linked by a glazed staircase which ensures daylight penetration deep into the plan and provides an airy sense of connection whilst also defining the separation of the public and private spaces.
