The Ripple House
The Ripple house was designed by FMD Architects with a soaring silver-top ash ceiling revealing itself in ripples of texture and light. Angled to capture the sun above the neighbouring wall, the ceiling rakes down on the South, enabling the neighbours to harness their own natural light.
The use of creative shapes and angles is evident throughout the new part of the home, from the striking rippled silver-top ash ceiling to the bold architectural forms of the kitchen and sideboard joinery, through to what is perhaps the hero of the space, the spectacular triangular skylight.
Another surprise element: this is an extension to a Victoria era home (see the original part of the house below), with the junction between old and new marked by a change in floor level and finish – from timber to concrete, with a lowered ceiling saturated in deep green paint, the delightful Dulux ‘Briar’.
