A Contemporary House That Represents The Solution To Sustainable Architecture

by in Architecture

Sustainable architecture has been transposed in a creative way into this contemporary, design-based residence named Light Saw House, and located in Fitzroy North, Australia. 

”Built upon an existing double fronted Edwardian weatherboard, our clients sought a local architectural response to a property they had owned for some time, but not lived in for 15 years whilst overseas.”, the architects from Zen Architects explained. 

In order to achieve the project's objective, the former house has been maintained and introduced into a retro-fit style in such a way as to exceed the current building standards. The compact extension accomplished the need to bring natural light and warmth right at the entrance of the house.

The connected residences allow the compact floor plan to feel generous and in proportion to the original house without overshadowing the south facing backyard. All the new rooms are connected to the environment through magnificent views to the sky and adjacent landscaped gardens.

For this renovation, there have been used plenty of recycled or recyclable materials. Existing external brick paving, paths, and garden beds were salvaged and re-imagined internally to connect the garden to the humid areas. Key trees, retained and protected during construction, now thrive within a newly landscaped environment.
