Zaha Hadid, sort of

48 Hampden Road, Armadale. At least they had a go.

Completed in about 2019, it’s by @leetonpointonarchitects, who said “Not only does the house function well on a practical level, the clients have been overwhelmed by the calm refuge the house nurtures through its natural organic materiality.”

Interiors by #alisonpyeinteriors, which I think are great, very elegant, lush and yes calming. I like the rear forms, but somehow the front is just odd rather than appealing; the cantilevered canopy goes so far that it reads as almost flat rather than organic, the wing wall is a bit if an add on, the square garage door dominates, and the big first floor window is square instead of flowing with the wall. But not bad effort.
