Gibbon Street House / Cavill Architects

Gibbon Street House by Cavill Architects

Gibbon Street House is a single-family house that has been expanded and renovated by Cavill Architects, a Brisbane based architecture practice. Inspired by architecture with veneration for the past, the added structures at Gibbon St. were imagined as a series of relic-like garden walls repurposed to accommodate a practical living environment. The walls and landscape dictate the experience of the occupant – encouraging a more deliberate experience, a slower pace – distinguished from the regularity and tempo of the modern built environment.

Small Mountain Lodge for Short-Term Guests

Černá Voda, a small mountain lodge, is situated next to the “old” ski run near the Pomezní Boudy border checkpoint in the Krkonoše mountains. The original lower ski-lift station was replaced with a new wooden structure on the confluence of Kolben and Černá Voda streams, the latter of which the chalet is named after.
