Architect: Licht Architecture (2022)
Located on a tight suburban block, the Pop Top extension exemplifies an innovative approach to urban infill, repurposing the often-overlooked suburban garage, and establishing a discrete, elevated studio apartment. The project was an exercise in balancing a sense of spatial generosity in a small footprint while maintaining privacy for its occupants and surrounding neighbours.
Closely nestled near its neighbours, clever screening allows the building to direct the eye to kunanyi/Mt Wellington and Hobart’s Northern Suburbs whilst shielding occupants from looking onto close neighbours. Angled fins extend as a fence demarcating private / public zones, softened by considered planting.
This award-winning project works hard to provide enjoyment through a sculpted internal ceiling, light and shadow throughout the day, pops of colour and framed views, and is an adept spatial contribution to larger issues of affordability, densification, and intergenerational living.
Open: Saturday 11 November 2023, 10 am – 1 pm
