PLY Architecture as Architect, Interior Design

This addition to the rear of a character single-storey bungalow in Henley Beach shifts out to maximise its northern exposure whilst directing the program and flow to the west. Intentionally the form explores cohesion & reinterpretation of the existing visual language, mimicking the elevation proportions of the existing residence whilst moving in and out creating a plan that responds directly from the internal program to the external spaces.


As the form moves to the rear a double height volume rakes outwards pulling the kitchen, dining and living spaces together and using controlled high-level openings, light spills through the space evoking an open feel. Slotted at mid height, a privatised timber jewel suspends, providing additional work space whilst informing an intimacy to the lounge space below as the volume condenses.


Externally a combination of recycled brickwork connects the old to new along a low datum, whilst vertical profiled cladding wraps above blurring the building line whilst emphasising the mid suburban coastal location.
