The Camperdown house which is built in Sydney, Australia based is completed designed by the Carter Williamson Architects. This living space design is designed by the architect based on the client’s order which is previously live in Rowley St. They wanted their new living space to capture something of the wistful adage “a man’s home is his castle”. The architect’s client, on a tight budget, within restricted, urban sites the clients commissioned a refuge; it is a stronghold of the family life and the quiet living. The crucial strategy during the house construction is ‘addressing the street’, the new living space is needed to acknowledge and respond sympathetically to its surrounds yet to be distinctly recognizable as a modern addition to the streetscape. Which is respecting the scale and the setback, height and form, the living space is takes its design cues from its neighbors.
To stimulated a rich dialogue which is resulting in the creative use of strong, inexpensive materials and a simple yet elegant construction details, is achieved by the tight budget, and a brief which is necessitated a robust materials. Like the materials inside this home, the space inside it is efficient. Inside this living space design, the laundry is doubles as a wet-room, the over-sized corridor in the upstairs as a play-space and the deep windowsills as a seat. To reconfigure play/sleep space, in the children’s bedroom a wall is slide away. Which a series of a saw-toothed rooves is carefully placed, the windows draw light deep into the internal space. Above the dining area is hangs a double-height void which is celebrates the nostalgic idea of the kitchen as the hearth, the center of a home.
