Knox Residence [1959]

Alexander Knox

Imaginative mid-century residential planning at its finest, Alexander Knox’s design for his own family residence orientates itself around a large sun-filled living space which sits adjacent to an entertainment area fully openable to exterior terraces and landscaped surrounds. Sliding panels activate an intuitive, wedge-shaped plan which sees Knox fixated on such geometries both in plan and section, with faceted glass walls of the living space shooting upwards to meet a playfully pleated roof form.
