Gilbert A Goodwood House

RAD Studio as Architects

As you turn off Goodwood Road onto Gilbert St there is a buzz in the air. The Art-Deco Capri Theatre stands statesman-like on one corner while a former adult shop turned new hip local wine bar energises the other. Firmly embedded within a suburban community boasting cafes, bottle shops, dessert bars, restaurants, local schools and shops, Gilbert embraces its locality.

Taking subtle cues from the Capri Theatre, deco-inspired curves roll into the dwelling, while dramatic geometric forms - lightly placed - introduce passive thermal control.

Playful interiors embrace the surrounding lush public and private garden surrounds where established trees sit among new plantings, whilst the architecture itself spills into the outdoor experience.

Hidden moments are discovered through landscaping, wine storage subfloor and the warm pop of vinyl in considered joinery.

Fond memories of a unique family dwelling are referenced, although the house itself celebrates a vibrant lifestyle for the future.

Subtle motifs and referenced detailing in the brickwork can be found throughout to respectfully bring together old & new.

The use of timber externally plays on the suburb namesake while adding a softness to the limited yard space.
