The addition needed to be sympathetic, evolving to sit behind and recessive from the original cottage. Light and bright, the new building contrasts spatially with the low, intimate spaces of the existing home. Where the two buildings meet they are united by a light connection, a transitional space at the focal point of the home.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanOperating as an interface between the interior and exterior condition, the rear façade is a playful composition of strong, off-form concrete elements which mediate the light from the east and west and striking, fixed marble louvres that filter and attenuate northern light in summer yet allow it to be drawn deep inside during winter.Save this picture!1st floor planNot only utilitarian, the rear façade is central to the character of the home, taking on an ephemeral quality as it captures and translates shifts in time and seasons. The marble louvres glow iridescent blue in the evening as the sun sets and cause dynamic bands of shade to play over the interior walls during the day.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanProject gallerySee allShow lessPress Conference Room of the French Ministry of Agriculture / h2o ArchitectesArticlesCopenhagen Arena Proposal / 3XN ArchitectsArticles Share Save this picture!© Brett Boardman+ 36 Share Architects: Carter Williamson Architects Photographs “COPY” Australia Balmain House / Carter Williamson Architects Balmain House / Carter Williamson ArchitectsSave this projectSaveBalmain House / Carter Williamson Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Projects Houses CopyAbout this officeCarter Williamson ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSydneyHousesAustraliaPublished on June 09, 2012Cite: “Balmain House / Carter Williamson Architects” 09 Jun 2012.
