Sidney House | OH Architecture

With a very personnel story behind the brief, Sidney House was a design response, that aimed to bring to life to a house that would have normally been condemned to landfill. Through a process of peeling back certain layers of the house and carefully and strategically building it back with a new perspective, the house went through a transformative evolution that brought its soul back.

The use of raw, robust materials, with considered landscape integration allows the home to serve as a calming, self-maintaining sanctuary for the client. Passive design, and appropriation of site and context took a house from something that didn’t consider any aspects of where is sat to openly embracing the land and location in where it sits.

The Grove | Jamison Architects

The Grove is a new residential project located in the beachside suburban community of Burleigh Heads. The home is an open, light-filled space with a strong connection to the surrounding environment. It is nestled into its unique, natural context, backdropped by the Burleigh Heads National Park.

The design intent was to establish a connection to place and strengthen the relationship with the beautiful local context within its sub–tropical region. Natural amenity is borrowed and occupants can view through and over a series of green spaces both within and beyond the site that appear to merge.

A passive solar design and void maximises natural light deep into the plan, and enables natural cross-ventilation, cooling and heating.

It is a timeless, efficient, regional design that prioritises its relationship to the landscape, local context and sub-tropical climate to maximise site potential and budget, while enhancing liveability and positively contributing to the neighbourhood environment.
