May Grove by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects located in Sunbury, Australia. The project explores the relationship between public and private space and re-imagines the vernacular single fronted terrace typology. The design draws upon a restrained material palette of recycled red brick, raw cement sheet panels, and timber. The façade is abstract yet engaging and interactive with the street. The project provided an opportunity for a private house to engage at an urban level. Unlike its neighbors, the house does not enclose itself with a front fence but creates a relief with the open forecourt situated within a streetscape of concrete crossovers and high fences. The entry gesture is externalized, signified by a linear deck beginning at the footpath which spans along the eastern boundary. The operability and translucency of the shutters contribute a level of engagement with the street, amplified in the evenings when the glowing perforations animate the façade to create a playful and vibrant entry forecourt.
