Bemboka House and Gallery

Bemboka, 2009

The brief was for a house and gallery that could be used to showcase a large collection of Australian pottery, books and paintings. The building needed to be placed high on the block to capitalize on the river and mountain views, with broad northerly face and be sheltered from the wind. From the road the building presents a modest single level facade with a welcoming verandah and glazed entry linking the home, gallery and deck and connecting via an open stair to the partially buried lower level bedrooms, storage areas and northerly garden.

Macquarie Residence

Macquarie, 2008

An elevated platform was created across this large sloping block, the building stretched and stepped along the east/west axis to maximize winter solar exposure and the easterly views of Black Mountain and the city. A combination of tapered skillion roof forms anchored by the solid boxed parapet form and the use of composite metallic and earthy building materials and vibrant colours fulfill the client

Goyder Street Additions

Narrabundah, 2007

The brief called for an additional living space and an outdoor entertainment area better connected to the large garden. The new space adopts a similar glazed gable form to the bedroom addition. The original back wall is extended, providing space for a servery to the kitchen and alternative access to the new generous curved deck, which incorporates an established Pistachio tree and is directly accessed from the new family room. The additions also provide carefully detailed joinery, dramatic lighting, strong colour scheme and a sympathetic selection of materials including Jarrah flooring and double glazed cedar windows.
