We are excited to share that Stable House has received the prestigious Wilkinson Award at the AIA NSW Awards!
To be awarded the highest accolade for new residential architecture in NSW, and recognised amongst architects we deeply admire and respect is truly humbling. we are so grateful for the Jurors and all the team involved to make this project a reality!
Stable House is a small family home that pops with joy and colour. Sibling Architecture has created an incredibly adaptable house with an eye to the future, without losing sight of the past.
It belies its small footprint, with a series of overlapping spaces, artful voids and curated views of greenery. The house weaves within the skin of the existing stable wall creating a delightful quality of natural light and depth of texture. The folded roof form is both a sensitive design response to neighbours and a delicate canopy of light.
Central to the home is the kitchen. Designed with memories of extended family gathering around for meals – the space is perfectly proportioned to fulfil this function in a small footprint.
Jurors agreed that the house is an inspirational model for how pockets of forgotten space in densely populated areas can be transformed into calm sanctuaries for living
