The Goodtown house is a beautifully crafted, texturally rich contemporary courtyard home in the sought-after suburb of Rochedale, 17km southeast of Brisbane. The large 1900m2 plot situated on the corner of Goodtown street and Grieve road with large imposing neighbouring homes presented a challenging design brief to the architects. The introduction of a courtyard between the bedrooms and the living spaces was vital to allow the internal spaces to orientate inwards and find visual relief in the green spaces and view corridors framed by the building.Save this picture!© Andy MacphersonSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Andy MacphersonThe strip of garden between the building and Grieve Road was an important design consideration in allowing visual privacy and acoustic buffering from the roadway. This sprawling single storey home sits gently on the site where subtle level changes navigate the landscape and the orientation.Save this picture!© Andy MacphersonGoodtown House presents large oversailing roof eaves to the north to create the essential shading over the clerestory windows below. The clerestory windows above the doors will encourage natural airflow and the ingress of soft light throughout the living areas.Save this picture!© Andy MacphersonThe material palette is warm and diverse including charred timber, warm oak floors, steel, concrete and stone presented in a rich architectural composition. An interplay of levels, interconnected internal living spaces and the relationship to the exterior, create a multi-faceted yet private living experience.Save this picture!© Andy MacphersonProject gallerySee allShow lessUNIQLO TOKYO Store / Herzog & de MeuronSelected ProjectsThe Gaps Apartment / Block ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ArchDaily CopyHouses•Rochedale South, Australia Architects: Alexandra Buchanan Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Houses Photographs 2019 “COPY” Goodtown House / Alexandra Buchanan Architecture Save this picture!© Andy Macpherson+ 42Curated by Paula Pintos Share Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Enscape, Astro Lighting, Reece, Subzero/Wolf Photographs: Andy Macpherson Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Inform Building Lead Architects: CopyAbout this officeAlexandra Buchanan ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookRochedale SouthAustraliaPublished on June 24, 2020Cite: “Goodtown House / Alexandra Buchanan Architecture” 23 Jun 2020.
