Creating The Core: Central terrace creates a uniting space to help the family feel more connected in their home

This modern, cubist house on the waterfront was originally designed by renowned architect Gabriel Poole in 1997, but the owners of the property wanted to make major repairs. They hired Wilson Architects to re-vamp their living space and complete the project they had in their minds. They wanted to create several living spaces and bedrooms that would be arranged around a central courtyard, to give harmony to the building. So, with this in mind, the architects designed a beautiful open plan terrace, with wooden slatting and white walls that would become the core of the house. This terrace was then surrounded with other rooms, such as the bedrooms, living area and kitchen. This creates a unique space where the family can feel closer together and feel more connected in the building.
