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.
