The delightful Hamersley Road Residence in Australia

Catching others’ attention by its unique yellow ‘box’ on top of the ground floor and a powerful indoor-outdoor connection, the Hamersley Road Residence emerges as a luxurious resort in Australia.

Placed in Australia - one of the wealthiest in the world, the delightful Hamersley Road Residence was artistically transformed by Studio 53 from an early 1900′s workers cottage into a modern and comfortable family private residence. In spite of being untouched for over 90 years, the existing building was successfully rescued and renovated. The most interesting feature of the Hamersley Road Residence is a yellow ‘box’ located on top of the ground floor behind the gable of the existing home. This exciting box was wrapped in a perforated screen to shade and protect living spaces from the sun.


Description from the architects:

The conception of the box is integral to the design of this house. Internally, the box is its own zone; bedrooms, bathroom and play room for the children. Externally the box defines the character of the extension, highlighting the change from existing house to contemporary home in a sympathetic but contrasting manner”.
