meares residence dalkeith

Dalkeith is an old suburb of Perth, surrounded on three sides by the Swan River. This residence shares the street with 100 year old bungalows and questionable modern day interpretations of past and international styles of architecture. Our project rejects this context and rejects the contemporary desire to exhibit power and wealth through architecture. Mostly concealed behind an existing street wall, this project quietly but confidently addresses the street while creating a delicately controlled sequence of unfolding spaces that engage with a hidden garden.
