Proclamation House

State of Kin

Nestled in the heart of Subiaco, a prominent inner-city suburb in Perth, Proclamation House stands as a contemporary reimagining of the quintessential character residences that define the locale. Distinguished by its exclusive application of olive-toned render, the structure seamlessly blurs the distinctions between the surrounding environment, outer facade, and internal spaces, meticulously crafting an atmosphere of unforeseen immersion.
The residence reinterprets the suburb’s archetypal, single-storey character homes with an abstract hand. The design echoes the proportion, volume and set-back of the local vernacular as an innovative response to strict planning guidelines, finding new expression in figurative, sweeping and angular planes.

The design aimed to craft a home that is like a holiday, every day, prioritising family time and entertaining. Creating a multigenerational home was part of the brief, accommodating space for the client’s mother, who resides with them. The objectives included eliminating redundant spaces, fostering a sense of connection to the neighbourhood and community, providing areas for both solitude and social interaction, and ensuring every space has direct access to the garden. There are carefully balanced natural light considerations with the career demands of the client to achieve the perfect harmony.
