Petersham Housing – Interiors

Farrells was chosen as architect for three contemporary homes at Courtyards, River Lane, Petersham by Berkeley Homes. Completed in 2004, the design concept creates three individual family homes that form part of a high quality architectural grouping while remaining private. Each house is conceived as a linear arrangement of rooms comprising dining room, kitchen, study and bedrooms accessed from a double-height gallery that runs the length of the house. The architectural language for the building consists of a range of materials, which with the building form create a contemporary classic modern profile and a scheme of the highest architectural quality.

White rendered walls cut through the landscape and the accommodation is enclosed in lightweight elements of timber and grey metal. A full-height sliding glass door system is used in all rooms. The three houses use three different stones for the ground level floor and three complementary timbers for the stairs and upper floor.
