Coldstream House

A new house designed to respond to sunlight and its passage through the day.  Large east facing windows fill the centre of the house with morning light, while a two and a half storey window floods the same space in the afternoon.  Small openings were located to catch the sun and accent the space within.  Glass-smooth unpainted plaster, some of it with integrated colour, was used throughout.  A balance was achieved between open flowing spaces and inviting convivial places.  Exterior materials were traditional brick, cut stone and wood arranged in a modern manner.
