Papatheodorakis House by Max Pritchard Architect

August 09, 2009 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Papatheodorakis House was designed by Max Pritchard Architect. The strong forms of the different elements of the building are reinforced by contrasting colours; red, blue and white. The upper level is at road level and houses the garage, main living area and outdoor terrace. Projecting out as a glass box is the living area maximising the views, but with sun control provided by the retractable and adjustable external aluminium louvres. Both the garage and living area lead on to the large outdoor entertaining area, a terrace with wood oven and enclosed by planter boxes and pergola.

August 09, 2009 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Foskett House was designed by Max Pritchard Architect. The gentle curved form of the house allows it to wrap around the private courtyard, but also to open out to river views to the north. The kitchen extends out to a northern terrace, shaded by deciduous vines and enclosed by a stone planter box. The living areas are orientated to the north to maximize sun for winter heating and large folding doors permit cross ventilation to provide summer cooling. Semi circular courtyard with swimming pool and mature eucalypt, becomes the focus of this organic house of sandstone walls and cedar windows.
