The spaces, done in consistent white and with the persistent presence of light, always are pleasant and provocative. These spaces, wide open and ready to be enjoyed by those that occupy it, are surely one of the project’s most important characteristics.
The architectural firm MaSQ Architecture was recently commissioned to carry out this project that has a total area of 90 square meters and is located in Sydney, Australia.
The main inspiration for the project resided in the established backyard, which was somewhat sunken from the surroundings. A new space for living room, kitchen and dining room was added. In particular, it was required that the living room be much like a pavilion in the garden; however, it was equally important that it maintained privacy and was protected. A brick wall was designed around the upper level that was then suspended over the glass doors and windows below.
Considered as a space that inhabits both inside and outside, the pavilion can be both a place of open interaction and of rest and protection.
Internally, the kitchen is located in the back of the space with a concrete box gutter expressed internally as the division between the kitchen and the living room.
The black and white painted brick, the dark granite floors and the exposed concrete reflect a simple and honest application.
