Wild Street House in Paddington, Australia is a modern house that was built in 2012 by Shaun Lockyer Architects, an Australian company. This 4,166 square foot home was built with admirable craftsmanship and care.
An abandoned pre-war cottage in a beautiful location in the Paddington area of Brisbane has been ambitiously and incrementally remodeled. Despite the steep landscape of the site, the house blends in well with the grounds and offers its residents complete privacy and a green, flat back garden that looks northeast over the city of Brisbane. The house is spacious and offers a surprisingly spacious single-family home on such a property.
The design of the house explores chiseled forms in its architectural expression. The interior of the house is warm and dynamic and flooded with natural light from above. The abundant craftsmanship in the house is one of the greatest attributes, and the seamless and timeless amalgamation of joinery, carpentry and design elements underscores the attention paid to every detail in this modern home.
The design of the house focused on an indoor and outdoor lifestyle. This focus culminates in the double-height outdoor living area, which frames the view of the city and is connected to both the garden and the unusual pool. The back of the house contains an unexpected architectural statement in its three-dimensional wooden facade that dots one end of the house and contains the master bedroom suite.
An excellent relationship between the client, the architect and the client made this ambitious house possible, and its quality is evident in the smallest detail.
