Waverton House 1
The project is a new 3 level semi detached house on a steep site with uninterrupted views to the harbour bridge and city. It is wedged between a block of units to the north and a poorly arranged house to the south which shares the party wall. The living area at the top level, bedrooms at the mid and rumpus at the lower level all have views to the city framed through their eastern openings. Sunlight is maximised via large, protected skylights and decks at the eastern and western ends of the building. The western upper deck is contained within an aluminium clad box which cantilevers streetwards over an off form concrete wall which will be partially covered by deciduous climbers. The floor plate is tight and circulation between levels is achieved through two stairs running across the house (rather than along it) in order that the width of spaces is maximised.
