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.”

    This is up there with the best! One of my new favorites. I love the feeling of 2 unique styles (opened and closed). The all-glass open area is super unique and feels liberating. Thanks for sharing!
