Bismarck House是由Robert Plumb Build、Bill Clifton和Will Dangar合作夥伴在Bondi開發的一對半獨立住宅的弟弟。
Potter Wilson建築師已經為Bill’s House設計瞭方案，我們的項目同時回應瞭這些提議的方案，非常具體的客戶簡介，通過協調住宅的更多公共區域和沿半圓形建築北部邊界的巷道之間的社會參與的潛力，使公共領域活躍起來。
The Bismarck House is the younger sibling of a pair of semi-detached dwellings in Bondi developed by the partners of Robert Plumb Build, Bill Clifton and Will Dangar. With plans already developed for Bill’s House by Potter Wilson architects, our project simultaneously responds to those proposed plans, the very specific client brief, and the opportunity to enliven the public realm by orchestrating the potential for social engagement between the more public areas of the house and the laneway that runs along the semi’s northern boundary.
Our brief was to provide a flexible house that could be used for holiday rental or as a future city house if the clients moved out of Sydney. The house was also to be experimental and original in nature, showcasing Robert Plumb Projects’ building capacity, while also prioritising the garden, to be designed by Will’s landscape company DBS, as an integral part of the house.
Our conceptual starting point for the project was the detailed context of the laneway. Into this context the ground floor of the house was conceived as a continuous garden between the boundary walls of the site. The common wall of the semi to the south and the laneway edge to the north were rebuilt using recycled bricks from the site demolition, with the garden formed around key figures within the plan – the kitchen bench, a window seat to the lane, a concrete structural blade wall, a steel cabinet for storage. The upper level, containing three bedrooms, is conceived as a solid mass that carves voids for light, creating diagonal and oblique viewing lines along the length of the laneway for the bedrooms. These scoops of light allow the garden to run along the majority of the laneway’s length.
