Completed in February 2016, the house was designed by Robert Puksand, Founding Partner at Gray Puksand, as his family home. Field House is the result of Puksand’s personal exploration of architecture as a protagonist for creating happy spaces, and takes its name from the idea of making space with amorphous architecture that attempts to overcome traditional interpretations of ‘outside’ and ‘inside, and even ‘house’.
The design engages with the width and depth of a 460sqm site with a total built floor area of 500sqm over three levels. The ground floor serves as the primary living zone, with ancillary spaces provided above and below this level. Puksand says that Field House is designed to be seen as an arrangement of planes that appear to float and connect in unexpected ways to create a field where the occupant can engage in space which is striated and sandwiched.
