The Moubray Street Residence develops common themes of work undertaken by JAM Architects by inserting contemporary solutions into heritage streetscapes, ensuring efficient use of space in confined inner urban sites within planning controls and exploring simple, legible design solutions.
The challenge for JAM Architects was to design a contemporary, functional home within the context of the heritage Victorian streetscape – a re-interpretation of the classic terrace.
The plan reinterprets the proportions of adjoining properties by defining the form as two masses. The “solid” is detailed as a bluestone clad element, whilst the “transparent” form is a steel framed glazed cube screened with aluminium louvres. Materials and form are simple and coherent. The articulation of two forms separated by a glass link and defining circulation reinforces the streetscape rhythm.
