Lilian H. Weinreich Architects
Carlton Art-House Residence
New York, United States
All project descriptions are provided by SBID Awards entrants.
This serene modern townhouse design by Lilian H. Weinreich Architects supports the creative lifestyle of a famed young artist. Located in South Carlton, a suburb adjoining Melbourne’s Central Business District, the residence occupies a prized urban site of two narrow lots that front a green public square. Although constrained by height limitations and mandated setbacks, the design achieves a spacious three-story dwelling by using the site’s gentle slope.
The residence’s plan arranges program elements into two zones. One accommodates the artist, with studio and office, meeting/gallery area, art storage, and sleeping quarters. A second contains a two-bedroom apartment. Both zones work independently but can combine seamlessly as a single dwelling. A glass elevator adds accessibility, and a custom motorized hoist system facilitates the transportation of artwork from studio to garage.
Evincing close attention to detail, the design locates the intersection of functional planning, spatial resolution, aesthetic detailing, and artistic display. The CGI’s were designed by High Q Renders.
