Greenwich House visualisations showcase the design of a new two-storey house on a steeply sloping waterfront site
Visualisations of Greenwich House have been uploaded in ‘Projects’. The proposal provides crafted inter-penetrations of space and light across its multiple half-levels, and offers a multi-generational model in its spatial organisation to enable room for a growing family with permanent accommodation for the owner's parents.
Its formal geometry is expressed as two distinct volumes separated by an open courtyard along the northern edge, and bridged by a glazed stair circulation zone for access to light, ventilation, and divergent interior views at the centre of the house. An ‘up-ticked’ rear and several considered pop-out projections in the roof and wall planes expand the envelope to allow enhanced connections from various spaces to sky and views.
Best of Houzz 2021: Design
The new year has kicked off to a good start with Christopher Polly Architect having been voted a winner of the Best of Houzz 2021 awards in Design for the practice’s portfolio of projects. This is on the back of also having been awarded in 2020, so it’s very pleasing to know that the work of the practice continues to be well recognised.
Sketch designs prepared for National House, a new two-storey house in Leichhardt
Several sketch design concepts have recently been prepared for a new skinny house in Leichhardt, Sydney - inclusive of this design option shown in its principal elevation to the street. The design option makes geometric and elemental references to particularities of its immediate context while also making allusions to the formal qualities of various compact housing types in Japanese, Dutch and Belgian inner urban neighbourhoods.
