Bardon Residence

Situated on an east-facing escarpment in the inner Brisbane suburb of Bardon, this project explores spatial and material connections with landscape and topography at both macro and micro level.

The western side of the residence connects directly with private sheltered spaces at ground, whilst the eastern side is suspended above the landscape, affording expansive views of landscape and cityscape, providing a multiplicity of experience.

Local bluestone cladding provides material connection to landscape and escarpment whilst light-weight cladding and expansive glazing formally engage the building with the cityscape beyond.

Careful spatial arrangements at the upper level facilitate universal use and aging in place for the middle-aged clients and their extended family.
