The brief for this project began with “we want a concrete bunker.” Equally as excited by concrete, there was mutual trust and connection between client and architect from the very early stages of the design process. Situated on an exposed corner site, privacy from the street was central to the brief. Given the desire for privacy and the client’s love of concrete, they were keen to reduce the number of windows, leaving the public facade as uninterrupted as possible.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellAs a practice interested in volume and daylight and how these can draw out the richness of materials, the challenge was to unearth these opportunities whilst avoiding punctures to either street facade. By carving skylights and courtyards through the building mass, we were able to draw light into the space. A planted courtyard draws light into the entry and formal dining space. The dining space is enclosed by glazed doors, allowing light to penetrate through the hallway. A skylight over the double height entry washes light down the off-form concrete wall, highlighting the subtle changes in color and texture. A skylight over the ensuite bath similarly highlights the figured character of the marble wall lining.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWhilst the external face is monochromatic and austere, the interior – by contrast – is richly textured. The warm timber battened ceiling offsets the cool tones of the concrete, whilst also acoustically softening the space. Oak joinery, heavily figured marbles, sheer drapery, and delicate light fittings are the softer counterpart to the harder concrete architecture. The result is a house with a bold but private street presence enclosing a light-filled, richly textured and layered interior.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessU House / atelier NgNgSelected ProjectsManuel House / Estudio Rocamora Diseño & ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Ella Leoncio, Glen Chamberlain, Kathryn McCullough Save this picture!© Derek Swalwell+ 48Curated by Paula Pintos Share 2018 Area:  544 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeChamberlain ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrightonAustraliaPublished on February 21, 2019Cite: “Light Vault / Chamberlain Architects” 21 Feb 2019.
