Alterations & Additions | Rosalie House by Owen ArchitectureThe Look
In their design for the Rosalie House, architects Paul Owen and Michael Lineburg of Owen Architecture drew inspiration from simple materials, landscapes and routines to create a beautiful yet functional family home.
Situated on a large block, the brief was to utilise the landscape as much as possible, embracing outdoor living and green spaces, – ‘a house that was easy to live in’ – says owner Loren Lockyer. The design follows the external terrain across one level with open spaces to bring the interior and exterior together, most strikingly in the central living area. An entire wall is opened to meet the greenery outside; an atmosphere Loren describes where ‘you really feel you’re amongst everything’. The mother of three praises the design consideration of creating visibility throughout the structure, allowing her small children to have flexibility to utilise indoor and outdoor spaces whilst still being able to see their mum as they play.
