Architect Visit: Nathan Gibson Judd in Australia

October 1, 2010

Canberra-based architect Nathan Gibson Judd won a 2010 Emerging Architect Prize from the Australian Institute of Architects for his fresh approach to small-scale suburban housing. We especially like Gibson Judd’s reinterpretations of 1950s and 60s Australian beach houses: open-plan, light-filled structures with a holiday feel—featuring unexpected jolts of what he calls “optimistic” color. For more information, go to Nathan Gibson Judd Architecture. Photography by Brett Boardman.

Above two photos: Gibson Judd sets the stage with a bright pink entry door in the Broulee Shack in Canberra.

Above: Located in Canberra, Australia, on a small suburban site, the Butterley house (shown above and in the photos below) uses color in “a nod to vibrant eras past,” according to Gibson Judd. “The dining area is backed by a brick spine wall that runs through the house, separating the living and service areas.”

Above: The pink Bridge lighting fixture, designed by George Seris for Belgian lighting company Dark, “anchors the space with a vibrant glow. The found and refurbished Tulip table features a top that’s colored to match an early seventies surfboard.”
