A LOOP Design & Build concept house is set on a 400m2 block near the centre of Cowaramup town. A modest house, this 3*2 design feels generous within a compact 120m2 footprint. Not only does a smaller design save cost in construction, but importantly it frees up space for a garden that would otherwise be lost with larger houses. So a focus was placed on the landscape design from the beginning by engaging Topio Landscape Architects.
Design features include a continuous 2700 ceiling flowing throughout the house, connecting spaces without doorways. A wonderful trapezoid skylight in the bathroom and a courtyard deck that also serves as the front entrance.
A material palette of Colorbond and fibre cement sheet is linked with detailed flashings and a custom gutter & fascia. An oxide was used in the burnished concrete floor and the terracotta bathroom tiles link back to the recycled brick walkway.
It is surprising how spacious a small house can feel when following a rigorous linear design. LOOP House is open for viewing by appointment.
