SCOTTS HEAD N.S.W., –
4 Star Villas having a consistent but adaptable design for accommodation by short term residents seeking privacy and interaction with nature and which could operate as a ‘1 or 2 key’ operation. The Villa design was based on 2 ‘internal living area zones’ capable of concurrent use by 1 or 2 families and the re-creation of the site’s internal, native bushland environment, accessed by raised walkways. The low cost construction method enabled my Clients to build affordably within a remote area through the use of economical, durable, low maintenance materials and finishes.
OFFICES AND WAREHOUSES
INGLEBURN N.S.W., 2010
The Client, a machinery manufacturer and supplier, required their existing facilities to be relocated and a new premises constructed within a tight cost budget and time frame, without disruption to the existing business which operates within a highly competitive market. The new site was located within a flood plain several kilometres from the existing premises. The Office building has an ‘open plan’ floor with ‘free form’ masonry and glass block external walls which are separated by internal recreational areas formed by paved and landscaped courtyards. This configuration was developed to provide security to internal areas and their computer operations as well as for the control of external heat load and a reduction in air-conditioning costs. The final construction cost was less than the Client’s budget and the project was completed on time.
BROOKLYN N.S.W., 2004
The Clients, professional classical musicians, required a private retreat for relaxation and rehearsal. The site extended along an irregular, steep, sandstone cliff face overlooking the Hawkesbury River. The design was based on a prefabricated light weight, high strength steel, component structure with a modular, stepped configuration which formed an inherently efficient, low cost structure. This building system enabled my Clients to build economically on an apparantly inaccessible site previously considered by Council as being impractical, not feasible nor economical, for building. The house was awarded by the Metal Building Products Manufacturers Association of N.S.W.
