Garden Dwelling Tempe.

Sustainable Home Architecture – Tempe – 105 sqm

Nestled in a garden oasis, the Tempe Garden Dwelling capitalises on the increasing trend of dual occupancy. Cradle Design worked closely with a builder to create a design that maximised the allowable building envelope, enhancing the feeling of space with a double-height void and strategic openings into the garden. The building form echoes a simplistic vision of a traditional cabin dwelling with gable ends, a dual-pitched roof, and a regular rectangular plan.​

​A simple palette of materials, both inside and out, provides a simple, modernist aesthetic that allows the mind to rest and absorb the clean geometric and sometimes dynamic lines of the interior. Exposed structure articulates the building’s integrity and honesty. Wherever possible, materials were recycled and reused; external cladding from a salvage yard, balustrades formed out of reinforcement mesh and faucets fashioned out of plumber’s copper piping.
