house designed for keith court in brighton by contemporary architecture pracitce b.e architecture.

inspired by the client’s love of the contemporary architecture of brazilian architect, marcio kogan: the cantilevered first floor cranks to focus on the site’s stunning water views.

What differentiates a home from a house are the ways in which a home expresses life. The values, rituals, culture and activities of residents are written into living physical environments. They find their expressions through considered design choices. B.E Architecture’s approach to designing a house is precisely to this end: to design life. In its 15 year history, B.E Architecture, led by founders and directors Broderick Ely and Jonathon Boucher, has amassed a body of work and a catalogue of experience which nurtures the ritual of housing for their clients. The firm understands what makes living environments meaningful and has a holistic integrated design approach to bring out these expressive details that would otherwise take a lifetime to accrue.

This house at Keith Court in the melbourne beachside suburb of brighton demonstrates the breadth of B.E Architecture’s experience.

The architecture exemplifies the characteristic framework of the firm’s design approach. It’s deeply rooted in its environment, the honesty of expression of its materials, its resounding quietness and craftsmanship all combine to invoke a sense of timelessness.

This concept house for 9-10 lisbuoy court, toorak  demonstrates the breadth of B.E Architecture’s experience.

The concept of a single house was designed around the idea of two distinct forms of complimentary, but contrasting materials linked by a glazed walkway.

The proposed single storey form facing the street with a large sun filled elevated terrace over the garden, houses both the master bedroom as well as a formal living area. These areas would look
over the surrounding gardens of the property, and the canopies of the pin oaks that line Lisbuoy Court.

A visitor on entering the property would approach the house down the southern side of the elevated built form and suspended sun deck, and enter between the two buildings via a glazed walkway.

On entering the building, a visitor’s first view is over a large north facing terrace and pool.

A lift services all levels of the house from the residential amenity in the basement and car parking, to the 3 additional bedrooms on the top floor.

The kitchen, although visually connected to both an internal living and dining area, as well as the pool and cabana, is in its own defined area. A design feature that has proved very popular in
other BE Architecture’s houses. All of the rooms are designed around access to north light and
extensive garden zones which are strategically place around the proposed building.

While the proposed house is over 50 squares plus garage car parking, the house could be larger if required. There is enough surrounding land that would allow for a larger form without impacting on the current open space and garden outlook.
