RESIDENTIAL, URBAN

 

California Dreaming is one of a continuing series of projects exploring adaptations of Australian suburban typologies to contemporary housing requirements. Located in an area of inner-urban Launceston originally developed with inter-war ai???California Bungalowai??i?? type housing, the project adapts and co-ops this typology to contemporary living styles and expectations for a pair of duplex residential units.The project takes the California Bungalow typology as a point of departure, progressively adapting it to the specific site conditions; sheering the floor plate vertically to minimise cut & fill, slipping it horizontally to address the street crossover and provide northern oriented private open spaces, and finally extending and wrapping the signature double-gable roof form around the building to provide maximum exposure to northern light in winter, while shielding the interior spaces from the summer sun & western light in the afternoons.California Dreaming is a consciously Tasmanian project responding to the emerging conditions and needs of contemporary infill housing in many of Tasmaniaai??i??s inner urban areas. The project synthesizes contemporary expectations for space, light and environmental performance, with the urban presence of an established neighbourhood character. California Dreaming sits in its street scape as something familiar yet alien, an uncanny presence, distinct from both the areaai??i??s new housing and the suburbs original occupants, yet familiar and linked to both.
