A small project carefully made. This project aims to complete a formally incomplete or untidy corner of an existing 1980’s residence. A filtered skin is added using proprietary aluminium sections and glazing units. Structure, skin, shelter and balustrade are united into a single system. Vertical units are repeated at 100, 200, 400 and 800mm centres; all multiples of the vertical units themselves resulting in a quiet rhythm.
This project provides a private outdoor room from which to observe the Swan River in one direction and the adjacent street corner in the other. The aluminium provides a lustrous surface which holds the sunlight and constantly changes in hue during the course of the day. This screen is set against a darkened background, the surface of the house proper.
