The photographer’s house is generated from a set of ideas explored some years earlier whilst completing postgraduate research. Notions of positive and negative, light and shadow, and the double reversal produced by the chemical processes which create an image in traditional photography are an undercurrent throughout this project. There were certainly many site context constraints and planning hurdles to overcome, but the result is a house strikingly unlike its neighbours. While most dwellings in this area are crowded and inward looking, this house is light, spacious and fluid. An axial shift implies a sense of departure from traditional domestic building forms, and reaffirms the creative spirit of the occupants.
