North Perth House is an urban-infill project in inner-city Perth. The design and construction journey was documented by Grand Designs Australia and will feature as an episode in the 2020 season.
The clients — who are keen art collectors — wanted an architecturally designed house, suitable for a small inner-city block that took cues from Japanese small-footprint living. The resultant design by architect Nic Brunsdon presents innovative construction methods and finishes while maximising spatial efficiency — essential on a 227m2 lot.
Pre-cast concrete panels were deployed to be both the finishing material and building structure. By using this commercial construction system as the main conceptual organising principle, the project was able to achieve a time-saving in construction, while maintaining its design integrity and innovative form.
The home is the result of a design and construct collaborative between Collier Homes and Nic Brunsdon (formerly POST- architecture), which formed in mid-2018. The collaborative strives to develop homes of the highest quality, which innovate around affordability, modularity, scalability, and environmental responsiveness.
At Collier Homes, we thrive on unique and specialised projects. Our team consists of highly-credentialed and experienced professionals ready to deliver the home of your dreams. Please get in touch if you are thinking about building or are interested in a grand design of your own!
