The Bridge Villa
Not a bridge too far, in fact less than a hop, skip and jump…
The Bold Entry Bridge.
Architecturally designed by Alan MacDonald of AJN MacDonald & Associates as a “Getaway Villa” located an hour from Perth in the beachside holiday town of Guilderton.
The Bold statement of a timber and steel bridge, heavy canter levered timber entrance door, skillion roof with cladding aligned to the external dimensions, red brick highlight walls conjure feelings of coastal seaside breaks and tranquil river holidays.
The elevation of this residence was designed to have the look of an era when Guilderton was developed.

Designed to connect with the street, the home sitting composed on the lots natural contours and tying in with the existing landscape.
