HOUSE 133

WEST LEEDERVILLE

This project, an architects own home is situated on a 300m2 building block in West Leederville.

The design intent was to create a compact energy efficient house and garden suitable for a young family. This house is only 170 sq. metres, but uses all of the volume of the building.

In planning terms the house has living rooms on the ground floor ; a large living/kitchen and second "quieter" living room which could be an office or library or a childrens play room as it is at the moment. Bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the upper floor.

Each of the main rooms has its own outdoor space. The main living room opens on to the large northern courtyard garden, the smaller living room opens to the eastern courtyard and the bedrooms to small balconies.
