Harold Street Residence by Jackson Clements Burrows

Published Nov 9, 2012

Australian architecture studio Jackson Clements Burrows recently completed this beautiful residence in Melbourne.

“The Harold Street Residence is a new dwelling located in the Middle Park heritage overlay area. The brief called for a new residence for a couple with university age children that could accommodate their evolving family needs.

The site is the north-west corner of the Neville and Harold Street intersection. The surrounding context is predominantly single storey Victorian terraces. Our response attempts to engage with the site’s heritage context through its architectural form and detailing, explores the public/private nature of the corner site, and completes the intersections ‘fourth corner’.

To address the corner condition, the house is located hard along the Neville Street edge of the site. This then enabled the creation of a garden on the more private northern half of the site. On this facade, a sculptured interface is created, providing a varied engagement between garden and living areas.

The pressed red brickwork and sweeping roof form seek to reconcile the house within its surrounding context. The brickwork is further articulated by ‘hit and miss’ detailing and Webforge screening, providing a perforated layer between street and the internal spaces.

In summary, the building is a sculpturally engaging family home that acknowledges its heritage context in a positive way.”
