Project summary

Lane Cove House is an experiment in intergenerational family living. Georgia, Adam and their young daughter, Olive, reside on a new upper floor, where internal courtyards frame long views over treetops. As they have for many years, Olive’s grandparents, Antoinette and John, continue to live on the ground floor of what has long been the family home. Uniform materials integrate the original suburban bungalow into the new spaces, which bring density and shared living to an otherwise traditional suburban setting.

New South Wales Jury Presentation

Sascha and Harry created a perfectly balanced intergenerational home for us – grandparents, parents and children are all happy and getting the care, independence and attention they want. We so thoroughly enjoyed the process that I was actually sad when it was over, I don’t know how many people can say that about their house build!
