Australia has a diverse mix of architecture and in this blog, we take a look at six styles seen in Adelaide, South Australia. What a ripper these homes are. Photos are supplied by the man of many talents, Richie Ragel.
Originally this style of a home featured a double front with an extended gable or hipped roof. Similar to the symmetrical cottage, the roof styles on villas also varied as fashion changed. This particular example also represents a convex verandah.
Symmetrical cottages were originally built as four-room dwellings. During the period which they were built the roof and verandah styles can vary and these two examples both illustrate the concave verandah, with one featuring a pitched gable.
In South Australia the Bungalow is a single story dwelling usually of rectangular shape. This style of home has a gabled front veranda and some bungalows have Kentish Gabled roofs.
The Tudor is characterised by steeply pitched gables at the front of the home. These gables are often ornately decorated.
Distinctly recognisable by their front-facing walls having three front-facing falls. This led to the front entrance sometimes being around to the side within one of the alcoves created by the multiple fronts. Roofs were medium pitched and hipped with concrete tiles being used towards the end of the style in the late 60s.
