Queens Park Residence
Modern Houses: Queens Park
The beautiful addition to the modern houses section comes from “down-under”, more exactly Sydney, Australia, a project by Fox Johnston. The house itself is very nice and cozy. A key feature of this amazing house is the interior, more exactly the contrasting white walls with the wood and black elements. It definitely meets my notion of a modern house, it has all the right elements to be modern and cozy at the same time. Certainly a great place to live.
Description from the architects: The clients required a large family home for their growing family that would best utilize the expansive nature of the block as well as respect the integrity of the existing house. The project response involves grafting a two story folded volume onto the rear of the existing shell – a parents retreat and study on the upper level, with a generous living area below. A central courtyard inserted between old and new provides relief and allows light and breezes to permeate. Living areas open onto a lush rear garden.
