Richard Kirk Architect was one of several architects invited in 2005 to participate in the Elysium development which is an ambitious 189 lot boutique housing sub-division on a site to the west of the centre of Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. Elysium initially adopted architecture as the key driver for the amenity and quality of the environment for the entire development.

The residence on Lot 176 is located on a ridge along the west of the Elysium development with views to the rear into extant landscape and a golf course beyond. The residence occupies the majority of the allowable building envelope and then provides a carved out two story volume in the centre to allow light and ventilation to all interior spaces.

The inside and outside are united by seamless transitions and the consistent use of a restrained palette of materials. Materials are generally timbers left to weather naturally, zinc, and self-finished oxide renders which will improve their appearance with time, allowing the houses to merge with the landscape with an overall desire for applied finishes to be kept to a minimum.

The removal of the garage spaces from the main living level allowed the main living spaces to link visually and physical along the long axis of the rectangular site and allowed the living spaces to be treated as a field of connected spaces and rooms whilst the bedrooms on the next level are conceived as nests floating above. The building is largely opened on the short access to allow views out of site with the living level utilising sliding screens to opening the interior completely to the exterior. The long axis walls are largely solid and openings are finely screened with vertical timber to blend with the vertical cedar cladding to give the sense of taught solid volume folding over the long sides.

The careful screening allows the opening of the building without compromising security or privacy from the adjacent dwellings.Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsProject gallerySee allShow lessInformation Technology and Media Center / Morris ArchitectsArticlesYenikapi Transfer Point and Archaeo-Park Area Proposal / insula architettura e ingeg…Articles Share Houses Elysium / Richard Kirk Architect CopyHouses•Australiacenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/227564/elysium-richard-kirk-architect Clipboard Elysium / Richard Kirk ArchitectSave this projectSaveElysium / Richard Kirk Architect 2008 Photographs Save this picture!© Scott Burrows+ 23 Share Architects: KIRK Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeKIRKOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesAustraliaPublished on April 19, 2012Cite: “Elysium / Richard Kirk Architect” 19 Apr 2012.
