The Screened House

Landed Residence / 260 sqm / 2013

Extensive renovations transformed a traditional closed-off three-storey semi-detached house into a loft-styled home that breathes with light and space. Walls were demolished and spaces around the stair core were reconfigured so that all three floors and an open attic are visually connected through internal voids. A Brutalist aesthetic is accentuated by concrete structural beams and columns, whilst a floor-to-ceiling folding metal mesh screen lining the front and back of the house creates ‘windows’ in the façade for both air circulation and privacy as required.
