Dutton Terrace

Category: Houses (Alterations and Additions)
Practice: Ashley Halliday Architects


The ‘Dutton Terrace Alterations’ use abstract planes, textures and surfaces in a more integrated relationship with the landscape to create wow factor and a variety of settings that inspire the client and their adult kids to spend more time together, live and entertain there.

An angled teak batten wall was introduced as a central organizing feature, unpacking the compartmentalized nature of the existing villa and opening up generous garden vistas and linkages. The batten screen introduces warm friendly tones and changes in transparency to discretely conceal a double glazed wine tasting room and form an elegant back drop to the dining space. A honed bluestone bench seat follows the screen transcending into a star jasmine trellis and daybed toward the garden.

A simple palette of timber, glass, and blackened steel combined with carefully considered, highly integrated joinery elements and detailing create a counterpoint to the well preserved heritage villa.
