Kay House by Maria Gigney Architects
By Eric • Dec 30, 2011 • Selected Work
Hobart-based studio Maria Gigney Architects has designed the Kay House project.
Remodeled and extended in 2002, this three story home features four bedrooms, two baths, and an indoor solar heated saltwater lap pool.
Located in Battery Point, a suburb of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, the now 3,895 square foot residence is currently on sale.
Kay Houseby Maria Gigney Architects:
“Alteration + additions to an existing brick cottage on the bank of Hobart’s Derwent River.
This airy pavillion of steel and glass captures seemingly endless vistas of water and sky, whilst maintaining a humble and unassuming street entry.
The lap pool is pivotal to the entire design, and in careful composition of the pool atrium glazing and elegant steel structure, a dramatic play of volume and light is created.
Passive solar principles were engaged to reduce energy consumption in a structure mostly glazed.”
