The linked pavilion concept for this compact house edit provides a number of design opportunities in direct response to context and development controls. Grafting the proposed addition to the existing, separated by a small court and linking element allows a clear distinction to be drawn between the two. The court will also provide light and ventilation to the heart of the dwelling.
The proposal takes advantage of fall on the site by incorporating a split-level connection that drops the pavilion by half a storey providing an ‘at grade’ relationship with the lawn to the north. The split level, together with a reverse hip roof-line maximises solar access for the existing house and adjacent neighbours.
