    Andrew T Boyne Architect added this to Understanding Flat Roof Construction27 November 2014

    The flat roof is an architectural device that is loved by designers for its ability to create simplistic linear forms. Flat roofs can be used to create box shapes, cantilevered into daring overhangs or can be planted to create usable vegetated gardens. Flat roofs come in many shapes and sizes, which include parapet roofs, roof decks, and green roofs, to name just a few of the options available. Ultimately a flat roof should play a part in a total architectural composition, and has the ability to enhance the aesthetic and practical outcomes of a home.

    2. Garden element This garage sits very close to the street frontage where the public interface is very important. The facade of this home could have easily been dominated by an alternative selected garage door, creating a perception that the architects may have not necessarily wanted. The architects softened this public interface by cladding the door with vertical timber battens that appear to be fence-like in their repetition, like the adjacent garden gates. The design of the garage door becomes part of the overall garden design and is read as a garden element and not an architectural feature of the house.

    9. Standout materialA timber garage door adds real impact to this otherwise minimalist box-style house. Evoking a warm tropical feel, the door’s thin wooden slats pay homage to a bamboo fence. As a bonus, the honeyed tones of the timber soften the stark grey and white exterior.

    Three rectangular forms are stacked on top of each other here, each defined by colour and material: a rich wooden garage door, a white volume and a dark grey volume with vertical texture. On the second and third levels, expansive glass panes are inset from the edge of the box volumes, allowing for both light and shade – ideal for beachside living.
