55 Blair Road produces a spatial experience that excites the senses by promoting light open plan living which is atypical of this type of housing. This residence brings a balance between nature and contemporary living in a renovation of a Art Deco-style terrace, gazetted for conservation.
Concept- To create a light open plan living space, whilst promoting a seamless transition between what is traditionally seen as the inside or outside of a house. The contrasting relationship between the metallic elements and subtle tones within the house create an exciting spatial relationship throughout.
55 Blair road project is a renovation and restoration to a traditional art deco style shop house. Originally the house was renovated 10 years ago. The new owner however believed it was too dark and desired more light in the living spaces.
Adhering to the conservation constraints of maintaining the existing envelope, a solution was reached. The residence was designed around a young professional who had a clear vision of how the house should appear. The final scheme met that vision.
Bringing light into this long plot was an important consideration. A large air well divides the two sections of the house allowing for maximum light to penetrate the living spaces. Aluminum-cladded walls wraps around the void. The aluminum bands reflect light into the living spaces.
