Northbridge House by Roth Architecture

August 6, 2013

Roth Architecture have designed the Northbridge House, located in Sydney, Australia.



Located in an area of Sydney where the vegetation still prevails over the human footprint, Northbridge House balances the use of contemporary industrial materials within the surrounding Australian bush context.

The building’s restrained and solid street presence, opens at the rear and cascades down the sloping site. Timber is used to soften the architecture, providing texture, rhythm, balance and a device that filters light throughout the home.

Key materials: Rendered masonry, zinc cladding, spotted gum trims and details, polished concrete.
