swanbourne house

The Swanbourne House orchestrates space around a carefully choreographed collection of furniture. The eclectic nature of the furniture influences the design, the house is purposely restrained with subtle textural changes designed to compliment the furniture without causing distraction.

The entry to the house is through a protected courtyard , one is taken deep in to the interior, all space is focused around this ceremonial space. The courtyard allows the house to breath and see while additional courtyards provide more focused uses, to bath, to sleep, to socialise.
