Roof top city life
Date : Nov 2011
Location : 10 Mouat Street Fremantle Western Australia
Project type : Private residence
The brief is to create a functional dwelling on the roof top of a narrow building sandwiched between two taller buildings located within the city of Fremantle west end heritage area. The clients are a couple who desire a simple lifestyle and a minimal footprint yet still have a residence where they can invite friends and entertain.
This rooftop loft manifests a sophisticated inner-city life, that is both ‘artistic and utilitarian’. A raw authentic ambience is created while at the same time there is comfort in both a visual and physical sense. The serenity of the home contrasts sharply with the hustle and bustle of being on the edge of the Fremantle’s central entertainment district.
Lifestyle design considerations :
One of the key aims of this design was to make it easy for the inhabitants to “live their lifestyle” and this was considered as a specific design task. The rituals of the everyday were taken into account and the elements of the interior were purposely designed.
