Parkerville Residence
Situated on a large open site in the Perth hills, this residential compound provides sheltered courtyard spaces for both shade, natural light to the interiors and direct sun to these spaces in winter. A standout design feature is the skillion roof lines. This roof design allowed for high level windows to capture northern sun in winter and provided natural light and ventilation into the interiors of the building. A high-pitched skillion roof over the double carport accommodates all the photovoltaic and solar hot water panels, pitched to maximise the sun’s rays throughout the year.The client’s brief called for 4 bedrooms plus guest room, 3 bathrooms and powder room, living, meals and kitchen combined, separate lounge and dining, activity space in the bedroom wing, large undercover outdoor living, double carport and an undercover drying space, and considerations for a future pool.

The building is made up of two pavilions with the entry linking both. One a bedroom and utility wing and the other the living and main bedroom wing. Spaces are only one or two rooms deep allowing for good cross ventilation aided by courtyard spaces. Northern sun is captured in the courtyard separating the two pavilions allowing winter sun into the activity and bedrooms. The study also receives natural light from the courtyard. Solar pergolas help shade northern windows and walls in summer.

Construction is double brick walls on a concrete slab with feature stone cladding to the entry area, fire place walls, and some courtyard walls.

A feature pond with a suspended steel mesh bridge to the main entry door adds a sense of calm and intrigue as you approach the entry along the sheltered walkway.
