Redmond Street Houses by Bojan Simic

The site at Redmond Street is uniquely perched on top of a land crest that descends rapidly towards the Yarra River and Studley Park in Melbourne’s inner eastern suburb of Kew. The symmetrical footprint is divided into two zoned wings, one for parents and one for children. The central spine accommodating the living zones unites the two wings via frameless glass links.  The pavilion inspired houses are nestled into the tiered natural land form and characterized by large expanses of glass providing thermal insolation and balanced natural light to interior spaces along with elevated views of surrounding parkland and distant cityscape. The projecting blade-like skillion roof form provides passive thermal control to interiors during the summer months as does the curved timber batten screen which softens the sharp geometric lines of the exterior composition.
