Residential Architecture: Swan Street Residence by Iredale Pedersen Hook: “..Australian practice Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects have completed the renovation and extension of a private home in Perth, Australia.. the project reinterprets the original 2-storey structure in the suburbs of Perth, wrapping it in folding and unfolding layers to create new internal and external spaces..The architects’ brief was to create a sense of spaciousness with a small site, providing safe play areas for children..The core of the building is constructed from timber, while the folding surfaces are made of corrugated metal and glass..Wooden decking areas and a swimming pool fill the negative spaces of the plot..The architects aimed to explore the notion of time through their use of materials including weathered timber and copper that will oxidise over time..”  Ample glazing, natural light, privacy, balconies, terrace, materials sensibility..
