The Swanborne

Location: Swanborne, Perth

Client Brief: “Demolish existing building and create a new home with a point of difference and room for an artists workshop”

The clients had bought a run down building in a fantastic area, and wanted a 3 bed house with real street appeal using a mix of materials and textures on the outer finish. We were contracted to demolish the existing building, although we were able to reduce costs by using some of the existing framework, and then complete the new build to lock up. Our individual clients had a lot of artistic and ‘handy’ skills and wanted to complete the internal finish themselves.

The artist studio needed to be light and airy so we created an 8x12m open plan space on the upper floor with front and rear windows to maximise light and air flow.
