Peter Overman Award for Innovation in Housing of the Year
HIA COLORBOND® steel Perth Housing Awards
Winner: Humphrey Homes
Built on a narrow 10-metre wide 306sqm corner block, this 396sqm home includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, 2 living areas, and a roof terrace with sweeping views over nearby Allen Park. The entry flows through to an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area, with a floating mezzanine used to define zones. Full height glass sliding doors blur the line between indoors and outside, incorporating the undercover terrace and outdoor kitchen into the main living area.
Constructed from 6.5m high off-form concrete, brick, steel and timber framing, the home also features a custom designed and custom-made perforated aluminium screen around whole perimeter of building. This visually and physically expressive Swanbourne home is a study in contrasts, with the delicate lace-screen enclosed upper floor juxtaposed with the solidity of the off-form 6.5 metre concrete walls.
