House C3 by Campbell Architecture:

Brief

In a leafy family-oriented part of the inner-west, to replace a fibro cottage with a stylish roomy new family home, that maximises the benefits of the northern aspect, is full of natural light, can breathe naturally and adapt to the needs of a young active family.

Solution

An opportunity to demonstrate the three touchpoints of Campbell Architecture – simplicity – simple functional spaces that work with the way a family lives; overlapping spaces to maximise apparent space; a bold yet simple oval atrium floods the interior with light; durability – design, materials, finishes, space enough to survive the demands of an active young family; and refinement – a modern delicately detailed and proportioned house that does not ape old styles, but still sits comfortably in the low-scale heritage streetscape of the neighbourhood.”
