Rickmansworth Residence by Gregory Phillips

Rickmansworth Residence is a project designed by Gregory Phillips. The clients purchased the site with an existing bungalow occupying the plot. The existing house having had little architectural merit. We saw an opportunity to build a new unequivocally contemporary home. The constructed design comprises a 400m2 main house occupying two floors and a distinct garden building of 110m2 which includes an in-door swimming pool. The house is a sleek, stylish and modern 21st century house. With every detail finely honed, the house is a shining example of carefully-considered architecture and precisely-detailed construction. Photography by Nick Tydeman.

A double height hallway design allows the south facing winter sun to be brought into the living spaces at ground floor . This double height glass helps ensure that the use of heating in the winter is minimised and that natural light is plentiful. In the summer, unwanted sun-gains are shaded by the fact the glazing is set back in a deep reveal with an overhang. This deep reveal also helps provide fenestration to the facade and ensure that the double height glazing is less prominent. The central kitchen / living / dining space is the focus of the house.

Within this arrangement the property has achieved an outstanding level of spatial variety and sequence. The route from the entrance passes through a small, dark panelled hallway straight into a double-height, roof-lit atrium before entering the full-width living space and addressing the stunning garden views. This is classic compression-and-release but the effect is not lost on even the initiated.

The materials have been selected to fit a muted palette of greys and soft Scandinavian tones; their texture varying from rough brick through dark stained Western red cedar to polished grey concrete. Detailing is minimal and clinical.

This property deals with the challenge of being a comfortable, luxury family home while accomplishing the client’s sustainable responsibility in an elegant, mature and replicable way.


The home of Moshik Hadida

The home of Moshik Hadida – owner of an architecture and interior design firm, and his family A deliberate combination of masses, dimensions, and volumes, the use of natural materials alongside industrial ones, a monochromatic and precise color palette, and facades that penetrate the building and become an integral part of the internal space are just some of the features of the home designed by Moshik Hadida, owner of a firm specializing in architecture and interior design, for his family.

River of Life – Curl Curl NSW by Sandbox Studio®

Aptly named after the meaning of the indigenous name of its location, River of Life sits nestled into the established coastline of Curl Curl (derived from the name Curial Curial – i.e. ‘river of life’) and celebrates both an open and connected modern liveability. Surrounded by traditional residential forms, the focus for Sandbox Studio® was to create a relaxed yet elevated sanctuary that was sensitive to the natural setting, while also having its own character. The reference to the double-gable silhouette pays homage to the existing context, reinterpreting the use of timber weatherboard panelling vertically instead of horizontally. The result emphasises the height and scale of the home, and together with a neutral and muted colour palette both internally and externally, an overall lightness elicits calm.

VICTORINO by Grizzo Studio

VICTORINO is a project designed by Grizzo Studio. The reform was based on the transformation of a typical chalet in the Núñez neighborhood from the 90s, using the pre-existing as a starting point to create a new spatiality. The house had completely separate rooms, and the view of the garden was blocked by the service. The premise was to generate a free ground floor in which all the family’s uses could coexist.
