Applecross is an elite suburb of Perth, Australia with great views on Swan River. This house for family who often hosts guests was designed by Jackson Clements Burrows. It is divided into two halves – Verandah (the western side of the house) and Enclosure (the eastern side of the house). The western side characterized by double height space enclosed by operable louvers which control natural ventilation and shading levels. It's mostly occupied during the day and evening. The eastern side hosts the kitchen, garage, bedrooms, study and bathrooms. There are also the dining room and various lounge areas which flow into outdoor space. The translucent roof is striped with timber battens and the floors are a warm dark timber. Cross-ventilation cools the spaces while passive solar energy heats them.
