Gabriel Poole

Poole House, Sherwood, Queensland

1962

 

Flat-roofed, walled, introverted and hence extremely private, this courtyard house was designed by Gabriel Poole for himself and his family. It reflects an interest in a controlled spatial sequence and in capturing zone of outdoor space to create different moods. It also maximises cross-ventilation across the site. This paralleled Glenn Murcutt’s Devitt House (1962), Robin Boyd’s own house (1957) and his second Richardson House (1960), and Clerehan and Bell’s Simon House (1962).

 

The largest space of the house was the main courtyard, doubling as a giant second living room. The first living room had its size doubled, effectively, by a formal garden court immediately behind the fireplace. The children’s bedrooms opened directly onto the glazed passage that led to the master bedroom, which had no ensuite bathroom but his-and-hers walk-in robes. Tucked behind the kitchen was Poole’s studio alcove, with a south-facing window looking into its own courtyard and affording a sideways distant view of the children playing beyond.
