This housing scheme has eight apartments of two or three bedrooms above a ground-floor office space. The split-section, dual-aspect units are arranged in two staggered blocks. The modern homes are exquisitely crafted. Beautiful interior detailing complements expertly used materials: exposed concrete poured in sections and cast using shutters of rough-sawn Douglas fir gives a board-marked finish with timber interior linings of oak or walnut.
The interlocking volumes are expressed through large L or T-shaped windows set into deep reveals on all external walls allowing plenty of light in and views out. Blinds are built into the windows, and joinery items such as bookcases and storage cupboards are also built-in. Long balconies allow the occupant to move away from the building and provide additional amenity space. It’s a project with a sense of fun.
