Part event space.
The concept for CommonHouse was to design a flexible space that provided a comfortable modern home for a family of 5 but that could be adapted to become an a office and studio throughout the day and a event space to host workshops and functions in the evenings and on weekends. The underlying aim of the project was to demonstrate that good design should, and can, be affordable and a part of the everyday life of everyday people. Reflecting the shape and scale of the original barn that still stands nearby on the property, the design utilised a simple form and palette of materials achieve a budget similar to a standard project home whilst still managing to deliver house that meets a 6 star green building rating and provides a contemporary take on the country vernacular.
