Standing out amongst its humble suburban neighbours, House A by Whispering Smith is an experiment in modern living that’s proven to be successful for director of the architecture firm, Kate Fitzgerald, and her partner. House A demonstrates that affordable, environmentally-friendly and beautiful homes can exist when spaces are used in innovative and considered ways…

House A is the first of three homes to be built by the architects on the one block of land. House B and C are in the development stages and will be guided by the same building principles and ethos, however, will have their own unique designs. Sustainability and longevity were high priorities when it came to choosing building materials for House A. The sixty-five per cent recycled concrete walls and roof are highly insulated, resulting in no need for air conditioning. As well as that, recycled bricks and parts from the existing House B were used to cut costs and reduce waste during the build.

Inside, the organic floorplan is orientated towards the courtyard and garden where the couple enjoys a considerable amount of their time. The lack of separation between rooms allows light to pour in and expose the finer details of soft grey bricks and textured concrete finishes. The choice to open the floor plan up also contributes to a spacious feeling despite its small footprint. A bedroom is discreetly tucked away in the upstairs loft for privacy and acts as a soothing retreat in the treetops. Throughout, furniture is mostly custom-made to take advantage of the unique layout, with an abundance of indoor plants that benefit from the bright interior. House A is paving the way for a new generation of homeowners, encouraging them to consider the environment by employing contemporary space-saving solutions when designing their own home.
