Architecture: Kingston House

February 19, 2010

A sequence of voids at the centre of Room11′s Kingston House open the building up to sunlight and trees, connecting the house to the surrounding landscape.

A place of calm and repose. An opposite to the clients’ busy lifestyle. A place of rest. Strong connections are drawn with both the immediate and the distant landscape. Voids are sliced through the building to allow for sunlight and trees. Trees act as a seasonal body clock, altering the hue of the building as leaves change from green to red to white blossoms. The voids connect the building to the rock shelf, the trees, the immediate, allowing these elements to permeate the living and sleeping areas.

*Team* Architects: Aaron Roberts, Thomas Bailey
