Brick House


Project: New Build

Architect: Andrew Burges Architects


A new two storey home with 5 bedrooms, a study and multiple living areas on a wide block of land.  The architectural design for this house included a brick base with three 'bridges' spanning  across the brickwork, creating an internal rhythm of bedroom volumes and double high skylight voids that define the interior.  We utilised large glazed windows above the brick walls detailed to have no visible evidence of window framing, creating the illusion that all public spaces of the interior are open to the external landscape and sky beyond.
