water garden entry
New residence with water garden entry relying on internal courtyards for natural light throughout.
Set at the rear of a heritage listed residence and at a lower level, interior and exterior pavilions were added to relate to the rear garden.
Added to the rear of a heritage residence is a contemporary styled addition of family living area and new kitchen. The room faces on to a courtyard garden and a garage that doubles up as an entertaining pavilion.
multi level pavillions
The design of this new residence takes into account the sloping site. Internal ground floor levels step down the site wrapping around a central courtyard and terraces. The pavillions vary in height from one to two storeys — with a guest studio at the front of the property — allowing the main house privacy and access to views and sunshine. Materials used are industrial generally with recycled face bricks used both externally and internally. The large scale of the residence is reduced visually by the use of different pavillions.
artist residence and studio
A new fully sustainable residence set in a remote country location using industrial type materials. The informal living, dining and kitchen areas open onto large decks in both directions maximising the flexibility and views of the site. The separate studio is able to also be used for safe car storage in the case of fires in the area. The design suits the artist as a working environment but equally suited to entertaining guests.
