These are 2 semi-detached houses in Subiaco designed by Gare and Klopper in 1976-77. Brilliant little examples of G&Ks early work,with less emphasis on recycled materials, yet still exploring similiar themes. Austere forms, bold brickwork, and strong geometric volumes. The chimney is, as usual, a strong focal point in the compostion. Extremely minimal use of windows and openings as well are quite unusal, confronting. The buildings are surprisingly tall for their footprint and are quite a visual treat to come across. My favourite detail is the ventialtion for the roof space with their initials carved into it. Excellent.
