HAMILTON LITTLE BIG HOUSE
Residential, New House
The design for this new home replaces a dysfunctional, uninsulated cottage on a dual fronted small lot. As the site’s favourable northern aspect is to the street the design works to be sympathetic to the existing streetscape built to boundary pattern whilst claiming the front territory as private outdoor space. This new front yard provides an garden entry arrival that connected to and extends the main living spaces. A central courtyard provides opportunity to scoop additional light into the deep lot at the point where the height of this simple form affords first floor bedrooms where private enclosed deck is provided to engage with the courtyard. The use of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are selected as the primary material for insulation qualities and speed of construction. The simple built form allows for a time efficient, low maintenance build through the use of modular components.
