[highlight1]  Brisbane Street Additions  [/highlight1]

The new spatial program of the addition to the Brisbane Street house, including the flexibility of spaces and relationships between them, reflects the changes in the contexts and attitudes of the clients’ lifestyle as compared to those living in the home at the time of its construction 100 years ago. Additionally, a boundary on the move was created for the home with a series of disparately angled raw concrete panels dangerously pushing and pulling against each other to become the container.

The concept for the Brisbane Street house was drawn from the way in which our clients, an airline pilot and a parks manager, live their lives. We imagine this to be in stark contrast to the everyday life of the first occupants of the century old Perth residence. While the old house is valued, the design of the new addition is not in any way a replica. Instead, the new spatial program, the relationships between spaces, movement through rooms, flexibility of spaces and the relationship between interior and exterior are different because now we think differently about how we live in our cities,houses and relationships and consequently we think differently about how we construct them. Our clients asked us to design a house to reflect the broader and immediate contexts in which they lead active lives. The concept, catalysed by our reaction to the local authority’s request to articulate the large area of wall on the western boundary, was to redefine the edge, to create a boundary on the move, in tension and compression and not necessarily straight. As a result, a series of angled, non-parallel raw concrete panels dangerously pushing and pulling against each other became the container.
