Greenwood Avenue

Designed by HYLA Architects

This compact semi-detached house with a swimming pool faces a busy residential road and the challenge is to provide privacy for the occupants. The entire side of the 1st storey opens out to the swimming pool and deck. The full height glass sliding doors to the living and dining area can be pushed all the way to the back thereby creating an ‘outdoor’ room. The staircase is made with timber treads which are hung on steel rods giving it a most delicate and light screen which also acts as the balustrade. On the 1st storey there is a timber screen behind the staircase which gradually becomes more open from one side to the other, hiding the wet kitchen whilst revealing the dry kitchen. This detail is repeated in the front facade but in the opposite direction to give the Master bathroom privacy.
