Blade House Contemporary Home

POC+P architects as Architects

The Blade House is a large new home on a tight suburban lot wedged between a heritage item and a heritage conservation area. The new 5 bedroom residence is a balance of maximising the site, realising sophisticated forms and contemporary functionality.


Concrete blade forms, crisp detailing, with overlapping massing create a strong form to be seen in the round. Complemented with a bold matt charcoal black and white rendered walls, clear glass planes and internal voids allow visual interchange between the lower more formal areas and the private upper level.


The plan of 2C Blade house is organised as a cruciform with a strong west east axial circulation leading from the double height void above the entry to the alfresco at the rear. Spatially the interior transforms from over tall vertical spaces at the front/formal parts of the house to lower [ still generous] horizontally expansive informal living at the rear. The stair accesses centralised and acts as the anchor at the pivot of the cruciform.


Organised with a strong central spine the entry is split between the double garage and the guest study with a centrally placed dog-leg stair leading to 4 bedrooms with robes and ensuite. The centrally placed landing overlooks the entry void with its dramatic double height volume.


Generous open living areas lead to a covered alfresco area [ with BBQ] and flow via bluestone steps to a decked rear yard and perimeter screen planting with a compact plunge pool.
