* Residential Architecture: Eden House by The Practice of Everyday Design

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 5 August 2012

Residential Architecture: Eden House by The Practice of Everyday Design: “..A chunky bay window protrudes from this timber-clad addition to a house in Ontario, Canada by Canadian studio The Practice of Everyday Design..The studio collaborated with architect Melanie Moore to replace the building’s existing upper floor bedroom with another that provides more space..The timber cladding and black window trim contrast with the dark brick and white frames of the original bungalow..Accessed by a staircase hidden behind doors in the dining room, the annex is kept private and separate from the rest of the house..Screens surround a dressing area on one side of the large bedroom, while the gabled rear wall is covered with shelving..The bathroom is organised to create privacy, with a sink exposed to the bedroom, a bath that faces only the dressing area and a toilet that is completely concealed..The low pitch of the roof increases head height in the space and blue handrails and taps add splashes of colour..”  Interesting geometry, materiality, fenestration..
