Langston St House

Northcote
completed 2016, garden in progress

A family home designed around interconnected courtyard gardens. Living, bedroom and transitional spaces open up to the courtyards but at different angles to maintain bedroom privacy. Sliding horizontal windows provide ever-changing light to the interior as the sun moves across the sky and through the garden. Fresh air is controlled with timber ventilation panels and operable skylights. Photographs by Chris von Menge.
