Patonga, Central Coast, 2009
This project involved the minor alteration to a 1950s cottage, extending and reorganising it to create a pavilion addition for the new relocated living and kitchen spaces. A second pavilion was created to the rear with a connecting covered breezeway to create a master bedroom and second living space. The concept for locating the buildings centered around retaining all significant existing landscape. The highlight windows to the new pavilions were designed to take advantage of light and distance views to the bushland, and the raw materials with limited finishes were used to maximise texture.
Elizabeth Bay, Sydney, 2005
This 70sqm one bedroom apartment summarises functional elements to mazimise on space and livibility. Through the removal of traditional walls and partitions, the space has been developed into a free-flowing continuous interior against a backdrop of scenic harbour side views. The interior design palette is a composition of wood, marble, white and mirrors. A selection of soft edged furniture pieces including Tom Dixon mirror-ball lights and a circular-shaped Minotti lounge compliment and highlight the organic structure forms. The result is a deceivingly heightened sense of space.
