Price O'Reilly house

Location:
Sydney
Type:
Terrace House
Year:
1995
Architect:

Commissioned by a photographer who wished to combine his residence and studio, the architects conceived this house in a minimalist style.

This two storey house has been built on a vacant block of land formerly occupied by two terrace houses.

The street contains a mix of residential and commercial building types including terrace houses, warehouses and apartments of varying ages and scales.

As it was to be a residential infill building the Local Council insisted that it read as two terrace type houses rather than as a warehouse.

The front elevation is divided into 2 vertical bays. The major horizontal elements align with the adjoing terraces - they also relate proportionally in scale as well.

The planning reflects this 2 bay arrangement at the front - while the rear elevation expresses the full 6 mtr by 7 mtr internal volume.

The west facing glass wall is made up of 6 individual panels which slide and stack to 1 side allowing the entire rear elevation to be opened up. This not only spatially extends the interior into the courtyard, but in conjunction with the louvred front elevation allows exceptional control of cross-ventilation to cool the house in summer, while allowing good solar penetration to warm the house in winter
