Derby House

A study in connectedness.


This residential project is designed to encourage communal use of the family home & garden, cultivating family togetherness. Sliding doors connect spaces, shutters transform traditional interior spaces into classic sunrooms, and nature is used as a guiding element throughout.

The site's western aspect determined the inclusion of windows to span the complete eastern & northern sides of the lower and upper levels to maximise natural light throughout the home. Horizontal shutters provide privacy and the element comfort during in the warmer months.
