The Sheppard Propellor House - Hawthorn East, Victoria
The sheppard propellor house was commissioned by a young family, old school friend of simons, who is an aeronautical engineer. The desire to increase the volume & "let the light come into the house", along with planning a nursery for their new born, drove this oscillating & protective environment. The diamond dreamcatcher roof window creates a spectacle of colours and myriad of weather variations, whilst organically reflecting the abstract aeronautical turbine, as a reference to the techhnically brilliant mind of the client. The clients were fortunate to have family with experience in the construction industry as well as project management experience and have boldly elected to build the project as owner builders.
