A nice residence called The Salvado Street Residence is completed designed by the Bates Smart Architects. This residence is built in Perth, Australia. By the architect, this living space design is designed for a retired couple in Cottlesloe, Western Australia, and it is conceived as a compact and own maintenance. To suit the needs of its occupants which are breaks with its suburban context of 1970’s brick and tile townhouses, the Salvado Street Residence is a modernist which is inspired by a beach house with a clear and rational design. Which are tempered by a critical regionalist response to a climate and place, the design is draws inspiration from the modernist ideals of the living. The minimal lines and a planar forms reference its modernist inspiration whilst materiality ad detailing draw from a local palette of the materials.
Around which the private spaces and the public entertainment space are organized, the planning concept is based o a courtyard typology featuring a pond. By separate the treatment of the private and the public spaces, this duality is emphasized architecturally: the public spaces are the open plan, outward-oriented and unenclosed spaces gathered under a floating Miesian roof whilst the private spaces are inwardly focused and enclosed within thick masonry walls which are create a sense of the privacy and retreat. Which is reveals a unique take of the contemporary Australian Architecture, this project is drawing simultaneously o the spatial qualities of the International Style and the regional context of the coastal Western Australia.
