Private Dwelling, Ipswich

Status: Ongoing

Location: Ipswich

The proposal is a new dwelling situated in Ipswich for a young couple who are passionate about design. The overall design of the new building has been influenced greatly by Geoffrey Bawa and his ideas of creating a series of spaces to be moved through at leisure or occupied for certain times or activities. It was with these principles in mind that the design sets out to create three volumes with individual identities that celebrate movement between them. The integration of garden and house becomes a key concept behind the design, blending the line between inside and outside to create simple and easy transition between the two, with the form of the build creating a central courtyard.
