What are the cornerstone materials and design elements used in the space?
Jeremy Bull: The volumes are interesting, while the floor plan is very simple. A collection of only a few materials holds the entire narrative together, be it concrete, timber, brass, or glass. However, each material is used in various forms, textures and tones. It is this variation of a simple palette that is probably the cornerstone.
How does the space challenge traditional work/live ideas?
Jeremy Bull: The House is purpose-built for work-from-home. It looks like a house and resides within a locale that supports mixed residential and commercial usage. It is also close enough to home for a lot of our team to walk or ride to, sort of embedded into their residential fabric. It feels house-like, and in places feels more office-like. I expect that at some scale, this particular prototype would not work, but for us, it seems to work well so far. We are still getting to know the quirks and boundaries of residing in a space like this, and I suppose we will be for a while to come.
