Rose Park House is a luxuryhouse designed to create a journey of discovery. Carefully crafted by studio gram, the robust residence represents a legacy project for the clients: a home to last a lifetime and house generations to come.
Sitting at the fringe of the Adelaide Park Lands, Rose Park House is the final architectural project to be initiated by the clients. The design brief for the luxuryhouse entailed a structure that could stand the test of time and was a reimagination of the existing residence which was originally built in the 1900s.
Studio gram selects durable materials for Rose Park House. Dark-toned limestone and American walnut speak to a sense of longevity and visually contrast the bright natural light that fills the internal spaces. An investigation of the pre-existing home revealed architecture comprised of off-form concrete. The modern extension of the luxuryhouse continues the materiality of the original dwelling.
Rose Park House is also designed with a focus on accessibility. Accessible ramps, flush thresholds and wide apertures are featured in consideration of occupants who use wheelchairs. Smoothly integrated into the overall scheme, the features demonstrate that in a luxuryhouse, form and function are not necessarily conceived as competing interests.
As a luxuryhouse, Rose Park House is imbued with a feeling that is almost ineffable: a feeling of permeating goodness and rightful being. Achieving longevity and timelessness, studio gram crafts a luxuryhousewith a growing legacy.
