PRAHRAN HOUSE BY NERVEGNA REED ARCHITECTURE

Designed on a tight inner city site for an art gallery director, this house is to contain two bedrooms, a private subterranean gallery as well as an extra study which can be used for visiting artists to stay in.



The house extends over 3 levels; the entry is on the middle, ground level, where all the living spaces flow around a courtyard, which is a slice of a circle. The dispersed placement of objects, materials and functions on this level works much like a layout of a pinball machine, each surface hinting at a multitude of possible routes that one could take through the building, sometimes encouraging a certain movement, sometimes not.



The front study with adjoining bathroom is for visiting artists. Downstairs is a basement gallery, indirectly lit by a concrete light shaft / skylight which also functions as a seat and a sculpture podium.
