Anderson Architecture are a small practices of 4 people specialising in new homes and alterations and additions with a strong focus on sustainability and design excellence. We believe homes can respect their context yet have a contemporary character. They can be thermally efficient, sensitive in terms of environmental material selection and resources use while also cost effective. The practice has won many sustainability awards and been short listed in the Institute of Architects state awards.

The terrace on a double block had a renovation done a number of years ago which did not make the most of the site. The new quickly approved design, lowered and opened the rear of the house by inserting two large steel beams that hold up the existing first floor. Infloor solar hydronic heating, 7000L of rainwater storage and solar power generation are some of the features that make the house more sustainable. Rozelle green recieved a national BPN sustainability award in 2009.
This project is our most thermally efficient house to date, developed through the use of in house computerised thermal modeling. The house requires very little heating or cooling, utilising passive solar techniques, internal thermal mass and natural ventilation to maintain a comfortable, healthy indoor environment. A challenging aspect, with excessive western exposure and a large existing building to the north, helped define the lofty roof forms which capture northern light.
The project involves additions to a free standing house in inner city erskineville. The additions provides a infill garage and studio/B&B space making the most of the hemmed in site with private north facing windows onto a secluded courtyard.
