Campbell Street

Brighton, Victoria

Campbell Street proposes two full size symmetrical dwellings on the land which was once occupied by a single dwelling.

A traditional Brighton neo-Georgian streetscape gave rise to a bolder form and a shaft in the thinking of how a residence should present to the street: the upper level is bold and the entry is displaced to the side. A series of volumetric “incisions” are used to ensure that every room has access to clear windows and not obscure glass.

These dwellings are bold and modern: capturing the imagination of a market that is starved of contemporary architecture. The materials are crisp, clean and contemporary: the palette is restrained. Featuring four bedrooms, two living zones and a study, every square metre of the site is capitalized through a careful adherence to strict planning policies in a streetscape starved of quality architectural statements.
