Project summary

A house twenty years in the making. Same client, same architect, same engineer.

Our client has been living in the house for over twenty years. They spent five years looking for a downsize but could not find a house with the “soul” of their current house.

The client to me and asked if I could design a house that they could spend the rest of their lives in.

The clients knew my design ethos, were very clear with the direction they wanted me to take. They were confident and comfortable to tell me they Did & didn’t like through the design process.

All in all the process was an absolute blast, start to finish. The client, builder, interior designer, structural engineer and architect were all on the same page, we were constantly workshopping the design with no egos, just a common goal to create the best house we could.

New South Wales Jury Presentation

In considering the options for our house including downsizing we kept coming back the original design.

Living on the water, the original design with the glass and steel mix always dazzled us with its abundance of light and privacy.

The remastered design accentuates vignettes of both light , view and space.

The alterations blend in seamlessly.

Whilst the original design is now 22 years old its contemporary feel , the individual aspects of the light and the way it sits on the cliff and twists to optimise the view have taken on a timeless feel.

We live in a beautiful home.
