A house that is practical and comfortable, but also critiques the notion of the suburban house
The fullagar residence is a considered exploration of the suburban house in sydney. the form is a composition of intersecting rectilinear elements, inspired by kazimir malevich’s ‘arkhitektons’, with a dramatic overlay of colour, inspired by the teachings of joseph albers and johannes itten. the fullagar residence is a house designed for its occupants. the apparently simple arrangement of rooms belies the subtle complexities of space and volume within the overall composition. this spatial composition also takes into account and allows for the gradual inhabitation by the family over the coming years.
