Pop Architecture and Beatrix Rowe have unified the older Edwardian features and contemporary design through contrasting and curvy elements, celebrated through materiality. The material selection considers everyday use, aesthetics, texture and detail while centring around the idea of contrast, openness and flow. The most prominent example is the ivory sculptural brick form that slices through the glazed northern façade. Designed to be both functional and striking, the ivory brick wall features an integrated outdoor pizza oven and wood stack storage. Internally, it features in the kitchen and encases the exhaust, air conditioning and laundry storage.
Following the brick feature wall towards the roof-top terrace, the form acts as a balustrade, continuing that relationship between internal and external living. The bricks’ curves and texture are playful and encourage the sculptural feature to hold a sense of agency, grounding the site.
