Mit ‘solar control’ getaggte Beiträge

* MPR Design Group have designed the Portland Street Duplex in Sydney, Australia. The development consists of two three storey dwellings in Dover Heights situated on a relatively steep site with views facing west towards the city and harbour. Each house is more or less a mirror image of the other encompassing a raised entry at first floor with the main living areas, bedrooms on ground floor with garage access and a lower ground floor entertainment area overlooking a rear garden and pool. Large balconies and canopies for solar control ensure that despite their orientation the houses are able to maximise their panoramic vistas. Combined with a minimal palette of materials, articulated and modulated façades, the two houses contribute a subtle and refined addition to the streetscape.
