Pleated House

PPC Residence

Inspired by the restrained architectural forms, minimal detailing and authentic materials, ‘Pleated House’ aims to provide a conscious and comfortable adaptation to elevate the heritage dwelling and restore it as the crowning jewel of Mary Street.  Visually recessed behind the existing roof line the extension turns its back from the adjoining high rise to provide privacy to its occupants.  In contrast with the Victorian frontage, the rear displays large glazing to bring in natural light and maximises vistas to provide a greater connection to the outside.  The elegant Victorian lacework and rhythmic vertical picket fencing details of the existing fabric are explored as contemporary design features through the extension.  These elements are present in the new vertical façade detailing and folding patterned screening.
