Sunrise is a recycling of a confectionary factory into a contemporary solution of a home. The old saw-tooth roof of this 1950?s factory was removed leaving a concrete slab between ground and first floor. The concept was to build an elevated two storey house, set back from the street fade to create a large north facing private garden oasis. The ground floor becomes the architect?s study.The quality of internal space is focussed on generous volumes as opposed to excessive zones that are not used. The materials expressed in this project have been refined to express the honesty and purity of each element, and arecontextural and reflect the history of the building. On the first floor 3 large rectangular blocks have been inserted into the space and contain and conceal the functional aspects for living. A large image depicting the sugar vats making hundreds and thousands in that location has been enlarged to reflect the history of the building. This image slides to reveal the functioning kitchen.The large private garden located on the first floor has been constructed on 500mm of soil and creates a thermal buffer to the ground floor office, retaining heat in winter and insulation from the summer sun. A large water tank under the driveway collect s and recycle water from the roof and garden.
