Located on a steep block in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, Tree House is a family house designed by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects. The architect ables to create bright interiors inside this house with light by inverting the arrangement and placing the living areas on the top floor. The house finishes are not only calm but also warm.
The typical arrangement of a two-storey house is inverted and the living areas are placed on the top floor to create bright interiors inside this house. This way also can capture the stunning outlook into the treetops. Circulation springs off the entry void and the stair can lead people directly to the top living level. This stair
This modern house is relatively modest in size with bedrooms that open off the stair area. The architect also ables to remove unnecessary spaces and remove corridors through rigorous planning, allowing the focus to be on the finishes, volumes, and quality of light and space.
The garden of this house is an important feature that can be viewed from all house rooms. This garden is extended through the use of planter beds, cascading succulents, and creepers. Every room of the house is generous and also immersed in beautiful nature. Thermal mass, cross ventilation, solar protection, and correct orientation are fundamental to all architect’s work to ensure livability and comfort. The finishes of this project are muted but warm and calm, uplifting the home’s quality.
