This project is a new home for a couple and their young daughter. It is set on a very steep site on the Otago Peninsula overlooking Dunedin City, the harbour and hills beyond.

The Dunedin House is formed from a single tubular volume that traverses along the steep slope. This steel form hugs the south boundary turning its back to an adjacent access way. The entry to the house is via a ramp that forms a slot between the right of way and the house. On the northern side, it is open to the sun and views culminating with outdoor decks and access to the small garden to the east.

The entry is at the centre of the elongated form. Taller public living spaces extend from here to the east, to and then to the outside living room. To the west, you step up a few steps to the more intimate private spaces.

It is a home that is both modest in scale and budget. It is an energy-efficient house with a low impact on both the environment and neighbourhood.

Victorian House Renovated in South London for a Young Family

The typical terrace 2 up 2 down house layout suffers from a narrow plan form with a set of corridor like circulation spaces. Ground floor spaces are often rooms off this cellular corridor with bedrooms at first floor compromised due to the non active circulation space that runs from front to back of the building.

Sticks and Stones Home by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Designed for an uncluttered and relaxed family life the Sticks and Stones Home layout is very simple and quite cartesian in plan except for one sinuous wall overhanging the driveway. Every room opens to a terrace or the garden through large glass doors that slide on ball bearings; one can step outside without noticing the thresholds.
