Kew

Mosaic House

 

New Build by

Allan Powell Architects

A classic Allan Powell design, the house was built over a former tennis court, where one of Australia’s greatest tennis players learned to play in the 1920s.

 

The 4.0 meter high brick walls at the front of the home, where glass mosaics have been used as external cladding, proved to be a challenge with the entire facade substructure including window and door openings built precisely to suit the size of the mosaics, without cutting tiles.

Delicately light grey rendered walls show the texture and form of the brick beneath.

 

The prominent characteristics of the house are the rear integrated sequence of interior and exterior spaces, which bring together the living areas around a centred terrace and lush garden.
