AIA Commendation for Ashgrove Hillside House
Thrilled that Ashgrove Hillside House was recognised with a commendation at the AIA regional awards. Well done to everyone involved and thanks to the Jury. An incredible line up of projects in the awards this year!
Jury Citation :
The Ashgrove Hillside House radically opens up an introverted 90s house and embraces the available views. Following the client dictum of minimum demolition the extension is skilfully grafted onto the existing structure and plugged into the difficult 45 degree circulation. In contrast to the rather confusing the original internal planning the new works creates dramatic new circulation routes between the new and existing terraces and levels. The project is a wonderful example of the way in which a house that belongs to an era where size and ostentation were the priority can be reimagined as a celebration of its sites potential and an embrace of outdoor living.
