Mount Druitt house, NSW

With its beginnings in 1930s Bauhaus Europe, the simple positioning of a single rectangular form for primary living is an eternal expression of modernist residential design.

This house’s street elevation contains raw concrete precast cladding and Corten (rusted) steel to cast shadows into the double-storey entry lobby, with an in-situ face-concrete blade wall.

The metallic finish louvre to the master bedroom balcony above the garage gives its façade a dramatic appearance, changing from green, the client’s favourite colour, as you walk past in one direction, to silver in the other.

Entry is through oversized solid/pivot door to a sunny entry lobby with open-tread stairs leading to the upstairs family room, providing a sensational experience of its space.
