Starr Residence by Brian Meyerson Architects

By • Sep 12, 2011

Sydney-based studio Brian Meyerson Architects has send us photos of the Starr Residence project.

This two-story contemporary home is located on Ramsgate Avenue in Bondi, an eastern suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia.

Starr Residence by Brian Meyerson Architects:

“The design of this house at Bondi Beach centres on maximising space within strict height and bulk controls while taking advantage of available views, light and breezes. Arising from these controls, architectural imagery is developed referring to the cultural history of Bondi and to the sand and sea. A sweeping copper roof evokes various images ranging from surf boat hulls to breaching humpback whales.

Stone, plywood and intricately formed concrete give spaces character. These materials are complemented by compelling opposites, such as soft sheer curtains with alternating with planes of solidity and transparency.

The house attempts to lyrically connect to its beachside site.”
