Kew House

Client: Private     Status: Project Planning      Category: Concept Presentation, Residential

The existing entry for the multiple level house sits below the road level, with the rear yard falling steeply away from this level.Two large easements also site across the rear yard.

This slope poses a challenge to develop connections between the house and yard, and also to create usable spaces from such a steep slope. A 3D model was developed to test ideas.

The proposed concept divides the yard into three zones; the formal terrace adjacent to the house, a gravelled informal terrace and a more natural area at the base of the slope.
