The Cooper Residence is designed to provide accommodation for a large family while minimising the impact on surrounding residential development and views. Two opposing roof forms frame a simple building element creating dynamic interior/exterior spaces filled with natural light.
The central area between two pavilions not only reduces the bulk of the building provides a core function of the home for vertical circulation, thermal mass and continuous flow of light and natural ventilation. The interior palette combines neutral tones of sandstone block and oak timbers balanced against crisp white joinery and external zinc roof planes. These materials are reflected inside and out with zinc planes externally folding down into the internal courtyard finally wrapping the sandstone fireplace.
