Residential Architecture: Castlecrag Residence by CplusC Architectural Workshop: “..an open, light filled contemporary family home that embraces the ideals of Walter Burley Griffin’s design legacy for Castlecrag “Building for Nature”..The Kitchen is the pivotal room in the home, with Western Red Cedar doors disappearing seamlessly behind recycled brickwork allowing the internal living space to extend to a double-volume outdoor living space where spotted gum decking leads to the garden and swimming pool. The external use of timber for seating, decking, fencing and screening terminates in a garden pavilion and transforms the yard into an intimate, peaceful oasis within a dense suburban context for the enjoyment of the Client and their young family..The Architect has drawn upon the functional and aesthetic qualities of timber to heighten the experience of the home. The natural warmth of timber has been utilised in all applications of the home from structure, cladding, the internal finishes and external amenities..” Extensive glazing, indoor/outdoor sensibility, abundant interior and exterior wood and wood veneers..
