Private house in Sydney
A new private house is built in Sydney created by Luigi Rosselli Architects.
This private house play with traditional architectural elements that are associated with comfort, and pleasant memories. The building is located in the new district of the city, on a fairly flat plot. The two wings of the private house have a gable roof overlap. The bedroom on the second floor overhangs the lower wing, where there are facilities for the whole family. White superstructure, resembling a barn. Bedrooms are hanging over the first floor, forming a roof terrace. The interior uses traditional elements, but in a modern way. For example, the vaulted ceilings are combined with polished concrete floors and rafters from solid wood contrast with steel window frames. This is used as a design of spectacular colors, making this private house in Sydney an old house with a modern feeling. You may want to check Architectural Studio Luigi Rosselli other private house.
From and about the architect:
“Sketches are my central method of communication” says Luigi. “I use them to persuade and engage my clients, but also to charm builders and local councils“. There’s a magic to the architectural sketch that the computer will never be able to replicate, says the Sydney architect. He’s been sketching almost daily for the past 30 eyars and his drawings have playes a key role in the construction of some of Australia’s most admired residential and public buildings, including Parliament House in Canberra. The wizardry of a sketch comes from the fact it can reveal so much about a design without giving it all away, he says. “When a client sees a rendering of a design they assume it’s exactly as it will appear when it’s finished, and that can be quite limiting. There is liberty in a sketch“.
For Luigi, the design process can only begin when he’s ready to draw. It’s his drawings that determine the character and style of a building, as well as its proportion and scale. The drawings are considered an reworked until they are just so, then Luigi’s design team interprets his lines and turns them into angles and elevations, inputting the precise measurements that are required to construct a home.
Yellowtrace is Luigi’s preferred sketching paper. He puts his ideas down on plain white paper first, then transfers them to yellow trace using a black pen. Next he draws an outline of his structure and uses coloured pencils to create shading and a sense of the environment around the house. To represent lighter areas of a building, Luigi reaches for something a little unusual: correction fluid. “A pencil doesn’t give me a strong enough white so I use Tippex“, he says.
Lugi’s three decades of architectural drawings are celebrated in a beautiful book, Perspectives, released earlier this year. It was accompanied by an exhibition of his work, the star feature being an installation that consisted of an enormous archway pasted with copies of hundreds of his drawings.
“I feel fortunate to have studied at a time when pencils were all we had”, says Luigi. “For me, the pencil is a natural tool. It takes a 3D specialist on my staff three days to work up a perspective; I can do it in three hours“.
