This project is created to respond to the client’s request for a compact home that allows them to exhibit and create their art collection. Gallery House is designed by Zen Architects and located in Carnegie. The result of this awesome project is easy living home with a high level of natural comfort and sustainability in a unique and awesome gallery setting.
A studio and gallery space is combined upstairs and a large, north-facing void is incorporating over the living space below. This way allows the art easy to be seen from all angles. There is also a deep timber that eaves over the second floor of the house that shade the expansive windows. The ceiling of the house bends up to the south, capturing cooling breezes well.
Solar energy can be poured through tall windows thanks to the two-storey void, bathing the core of the house and the living spaces in warm sunlight. There are large doors that open up to the garden while high windows of the house offer beautiful sky views to the horizon.
This house is open and welcoming from the street, and it is also scaled to fit into the neighborhood. It shows the sensitivity to its beautiful surrounding environment. The result of this project is an easy living home in a unique gallery setting that provides a high level of natural comfort and sustainability.
