Clanwilliam Street

“Eastwood House” is a unique architectural project designed for a single family looking to create a home to live in and another to finance the project. The property is located on a corner lot that falls over 9 meters from the top of the site to the bottom, providing an opportunity to make the most of the topography and create a series of built forms that maximize views and orientations. The building is constructed using lightweight timber, which not only reduces the carbon footprint of the project but also provides a sustainable and durable structure. The exterior of the building is clad in sustainable timber cladding, with cantilevering forms that provide a traditional profile to the original houses adjacent but change as it falls towards the rear. The rear house has been designed around a large gum tree to provide an intimate courtyard home. The design takes into consideration the natural surroundings, preserving the tree and creating a connection between the indoors and outdoors. The use of natural materials and focus on sustainable design make this home not only beautiful but also environmentally friendly. “Eastwood House” is a perfect example of how to make the most of a challenging site and create a unique and functional home that is in harmony with the natural surroundings. The use of sustainable materials and innovative design make this project a perfect example of how to create a home that is both beautiful and environmentally friendly.
