brisbane street additions

upon the local authority's request to decorate a large visible separating wall, australian firm rad architecture responded with the 
'brisbane street additions' in perth, nominated for the 'houses' category in the WAF 2012. the street level contains social functions 
that include eating, gathering and recreation which exist in a progression of spaces defined by both the interior and exterior. 
the upper and lower floors are assigned to private sleeping rooms. a full-height steel tower for vertical circulation connects the two
structures that collectively make up the dwelling.
