Lilypad House by Jorge Hrdina Architects

By • Oct 8, 2011

Australian studio Jorge Hrdina Architects has designed the Lilypad House project.

This single story contemporary residence is located in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Lilypad House by Jorge Hrdina Architects:

“The Lilypad House was designed to accommodate ease of access by wheelchair and provide the inhabitants with a sanctuary from typical suburban consolidation.

The refined twin portal frames of radial timber laminations stand as freestanding structures that anchor the two ends of the house.

Rather than completely consume the site as the neighboring houses, the lilypad house employs low walls and ceilings while wrapping itself around a sun filled garden courtyard that forms a connection with the park directly opposite. No physical boundary exists between the house and the natural landscape, allowing for a thoughtful meander between public and private.”
