Location: Redfern, Sydney
The designs for cluster housing were initially created for a low income housing area in Redfern, an inner-city suburb of Sydney. The architect’s main objective was to make sure that the traditional 19th century workers cottage aesthetic would not be overrun by a newly introduced aesthetic. The concept proposed is characterized by pitched roof shapes that capture the spirit of the existing architecture. The pitched roof premise is captivated in all 3 dimensions. Working with a series of systems in Maya that behave dynamically, the pitched roof, in plan section and elevation becomes a device for space planning sun orientation and facade design. The cluster housing modules will be made from highly transportable lightweight materials such as curved metal profiles and formed plywood panels.Construction of the Redfern scheme is due to commence in late November. EnterArchitecture will be working on similar projects for a remote housing cluster with the Western Australian Government and also for a client in the United.
