Text description provided by the architects. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life and surrounded by the serenity of the Adelaide Hills… Number 6 is above all a place to live. Gestures to the iconic shapes of days gone by, the familiarity of simple materials punctuated by ‘blackness’, articulating the interiors and giving the storied, dark original house a new lease of life. With strong lines, framed views, bright and airy spaces, this bold renovation strives to capture the best of mid-century modernist style, Scandinavian warmth and a stunning location.

Exterior cladding, maxline cladding and raw concrete paving offer cues to a more rural form of architecture, balancing the contemporary form. The result is a striking approach to the building that is grand yet grounded in context.

The central addition serves as the kitchen, living room, dining room and conceals the service areas of the pantry, laundry room and butler’s powder room. This central space separates the parents’ wing from that of the “retreat” for young teenagers. Reworking the existing ‘bones’ allowed us to minimize the amount of ‘addition’.

The architecture and interior design have evolved together through internal collaboration. Interior design and architecture go hand in hand and an incredibly close relationship between these professions is imperative to achieve holistic design results. A tight-knit project team was critical to the success of any project. a close working relationship engineer allowed us to distill a structural solution suitable for large spans and cantilevers built using conventional framing methodology. contribution of others, including engineers, landscape architects, artists and other specialists to achieve this result.

We have reinvigorated a tired, poorly planned and non-contextual building and created a well-appointed and welcoming family home. Apart from the list of spatial arrangements, the owner wanted a house that served his daily life, could accommodate a large dinner party and, above all, be at home.
