Patterson Street Residence by Jost Architects

Patterson Street Residence is a minimalist house located in Middle Park, Australia, designed by Jost Architects. The roof form of the addition references the original, with both its pitch and the angles of the raking fascias to the main house and the studio. These are tied together with two steel beams creating a feeling that the garage and studio are being towed along.

Both additions benefit from abundant natural sunlight controlled by large eaves, and natural ventilation with glazed sliding doors with highlight louvre windows. The internal and external materials were selected to be both durable and neat, and a subtle mix of simple finishes and textures allow for a contemporary aesthetic that sits comfortably within the fabric of the existing house.
