Text description provided by the architects. Rhythm House is a renovation and extension to an existing Heritage 1920’s bungalow in West Brunswick. The owners approached me with a unique brief. A family of five and all accomplished musicians, they wanted a family home with the capacity to be a performance space and also a recording studio; a hybrid functioning home; a “Rhythm House”.

The Rhythm house is a home designed for a family of musicians. An existing Heritage timber bungalow is extended to provide new living areas, a specialised sound recording space and performance area that accommodates a grand piano. A dramatic contrast between the existing and proposed extension was important to the project.The structural expression of the new form is reminiscent of a well tuned instrument, like a deconstructed piano or double bass. The rhythm house adopts a new construction system of engineered LVL portal frames. These are expressed internally and externally and also provide a secondary function of providing the faceted internal surface ideal for an effective acoustic space.
