Origami House, Tasmania

Located on a remnant internal block in inner Hobart, Tasmania, surrounded by nine neighbours, Origami House folds it’s way across and down the site, creating private outside and inside spaces for clients that were as focused on the garden as they were on their new home.

As keen gardeners, the clients were looking to establish a series of garden spaces, using the house to create differing weather conditions, allowing them to grow a variety of plants.

Wrapping the house in the garden promoted the necessary privacy of living close, while also creating the illusion of a larger garden, by visually merging their plants with the foliage of the neighbours’.

The house is reached via a long gravel driveway squeezing between four neighbours, delivering you to the west-facing entry/afternoon courtyard.

The entry is double-sided, allowing entry from the western courtyard; and from the east, where a right of way allows access from the adjacent street, a quicker path back from the city.

The form is wrapped in black steel cladding, to disappear as shadow within the planned garden.
