Sorrel House by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Architects: Shaun Lockyer Architects
Project: Sorrel House
Location: Queensland, Australia
Photography: Scott Burrows

Sorrel House is a project that explores the juxtaposition between historical context and contemporary architecture within a broader subtropical paradigm. Beyond the initial stark contrast that presents between the new and old, a more subtle debate about edges, openings and thresholds is being had. The house seeks to engage with the land at the rear of the site where the natural topography meets the outdoor living areas. Punctuated by a swimming pool that bounds the site to the west, the combined indoor and outdoor living areas form a single level, consolidated space where the practical needs of a young family can poetically be met.
