An outlook framed for private viewing.
Located in Brisbane's inner city the Fuller House involved the renovation and extension of an old worker's cottage. The design intended to 'break open' the existing structure and establish distinct family-orientated spaces within the dwelling.
The new addition respects in scale the existing house, however the design was generated as a direct response to the climate and need for privacy from side neighbours. A large opening from the 'indoor' deck thus shifts the view across a series of backyards to the rear.
Re-locating the kitchen in a transition space between new and old sections of the home creates a central location for all circulation through the building. While the adjacent landscaped 'internal' stair, further defines vertical circulation and acts as both a functional and aesthetic buffer to neighbours.
