NORTH PERTH HOME
The owners of this home enlisted Sam Teoh
Architects and JayMat Constructions to create
an understated, clean-cut, contemporary
home for their small family.
Keeping it light and bright, this home with
three bedrooms, a guest room, TV room and an
open-plan kitchen, dining and living area was
designed to maximise the feeling of space and
include suitable walls to showcase artwork.
The design ensured the living areas addressed
the garden and opened into it, to reinforce the
concept of using the garden as an extension
of the internal living space.
Extensive use of glazing was applied in
the open-plan living areas to bring the
outside in, and vice versa.
Concertina doors allow the spaces to
integrate seamlessly into one another, while
polished concrete floors by WA Terrazzo Tile
Manufacturers were used to provide thermal
mass for passive solar heating.
At night the home is transformed with
light fittings by Radiant Lighting.
“THE DESIGN ENSURED
THAT THE LIVING AREAS
ADDRESSED AND OPENED
INTO THE GARDEN, TO
REINFORCE THE CONCEPT
OF USING THE GARDEN
AS AN EXTENSION OF THE
INTERNAL LIVING SPACE”
