The brief expressed a desire for north-facing living areas to accommodate extended family and friends, creating strong spatial distinctions between living, dining and kitchen areas and facilitating moments for the family to connect. The spatial qualities of the existing cottage drove the design team to develop a narrative around inverted and split volumes, establishing a pattern language and balanced visual cohesion.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Peter BennettsThe new addition follows the existing roofline with an apex cut out, drawing in northern light. The lowered roofline below reinforces the line of the existing double-loaded corridor in the new open plan living spaces, allowing the spaces to be split into two zones; the kitchen and dining to the east and the lounge to the west. The raked roof line is expressed internally in both spaces with the lowered corridor ceiling dividing the two.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe ‘split’ concept is reinforced in subtle interior gestures throughout the home. Each element articulates connection and individuality, reflecting the personalities that come together as a family unit. The kitchen bench is composed of offset sculpted forms, bathroom joinery is articulated in triangulated geometries, while the northern deck reiterates the roof form in plan, mimicking an inverted shadow cast by the building.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessHousing Building Sucre 812 / Ana Smud + Alberto SmudSelected ProjectsBeijing Yangyang Group Headquarters / BIADSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Peter Bennetts+ 20Curated by Paula Pintos Share Houses Area:  179 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/958218/split-house-fmd-architects Clipboard Year:  “COPY” Architects: FMD Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Melbourne, Australia ArchDaily Split House / FMD Architects Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/958218/split-house-fmd-architects Clipboard 2020 Split House / FMD ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSplit House / FMD Architects “COPY”last_img read more
