Avalon bach/pool house  This was designed as a complying development pool house, or bach.    To enable it to be built without a DA, it adheres to the Council restriction of a 60 square meter floorspace limit.  This comfortably allows for a two-bedroom pavilion style dwelling.  A central living/dining space is bordered by the main bedroom and bathroom at one end, with bunkroom, kitchen and laundry at the other.  The pavilion is glazed on both sides, allowing it to be orientated in any direction and the simple roof structure gives provision for rainwater collection and solar panels.

 Balgowlah Heights  This has been an extensive alteration to an existing 1920’s house and site.  Fronting Sydney Harbour and connecting directly to an ocean pool and beach, the brief was to maximize outdoor living and create large flat lawn areas and terraces connecting the existing house to the foreshore and beach reserve.   The existing basement and undercroft has been converted to a garden retreat, steam room and children’s play room.  Care has been taken to preserve the original sandstone basement walls; in the wine cellar, where new construction has been necessary, the work has been differentiated by change of materials - original sandstock convict bricks.  Upper levels have been retained and refurbished, configured in a series of intimate rooms with uninterrupted views to Sydney Harbour and Manly village.  The house has gained an additional floor of lightweight construction with copper cladding to house a master retreat with dressing room, ensuite, library and study.

 Narrabeen House  The brief was for an extensive alteration to an existing 1970’s house fronting the foreshore.  In order to maximize ocean views and allow for privacy from the reserve, it was necessary to flip the existing configuration to create living areas on the first floor, and sleeping at ground level.   Ocean views have further been enhanced through addition of a landscaped roof terrace for entertainment and relaxation purposes.  The interior fit-out required a relaxed beachside feel.  This has been achieved through use of natural materials - bleached timber and expansive glazing to best capture views.

 Pittwater House  This project is a contemporary renovation to a 1960’s beach house.  The brief was to work with the existing structure and form whilst completely upgrading all aspects of the house.  The main priority has been to create private indoor and outdoor living spaces to accommodate the spectacular views over Pittwater.  The dry-stacked stone clad garage acts as a base to ground the lighter-weight house, while the flat roof of the garage provides additional terracing and is complemented by a plunge pool.

    Bondi Beach House  The brief was to replace this original semi-detached home with a modern dwelling encompassing ocean views and maximising floor space.   Our scheme has the flexibility to work as being three separate apartments or alternatively opened up to become one large home.   The materials of recycled brick, zinc and steel have been selected to weather the coastal environmental conditions as well as for aesthetics, and serve to complement the clean-lined contemporary feel with texture and depth.
