ArchiTeam: Hawthorn 1 House by Agius Scorpo

Agius Scorpo Architects


This tour is part of the ArchiTeam Awards House Tours, showcasing the work of award-winning small practice architects working in a variety of living and working environments.

Hawthorn I is an exercise in backyard optimisation. An assortment of familiar domestic elements both constructed and grown are merged into a cohesive and practical assembly. By re-imagining the studio, utility shed and swimming pool as a back fence, the resulting enveloped garden takes precedent over an arrangement of individual forms. One continuous element mediates the practicalities of entry and exit, work and play and connection and retreat. A singular ribbon provides a consistent backdrop for the garden whilst offering security, utility and generosity by means of a north-facing loft that filters light deep into the footprint of the studio.
