Hobbs Jamieson Architecture
Hobbs Jamieson Architecture is dedicated to the creation of refined, mutually rewarding buildings. Our work is guided by a detailed critique of the brief with the client to develop a considered approach to the design problem. Our work is identifiable through its articulated tectonic approach. We focus on being environmentally aware when considering macro building design, material selection and energy use. The practice has experience with single residential, multi residential and commercial fitout projects. Our services are tailored to the specific requirements of each project.

North Manly House
North Manly, 2012
An existing 1920’s elevated dwelling on the Northern Beaches was partly demolished & significantly refurbished. The client’s brief was to renovate the existing part of the dwelling, whilst adding a contemporary addition to the rear. A conscious decision to separate the aesthetic of the existing from the new informed the architectural response. A considered approach to the organisational diagram and the material selection were also a key focus. The result is a comfortable, zoned floor plan that takes better advantage of the site than the previous home. The home is much better aligned with the needs of the young family that resides there with a strong indoor/ outdoor connection between the flat usable yard areas to the living zones of the dwelling.
North Curl Curl House
North Curl Curl, 2013
The clients brief was to modernise the dwelling, focussing on the ground floor and its connection with the rear yard. Our focus concentrated on addressing the issues related to the western orientation and integrating a modern joinery approach to maximise the sense of space and meet the clients aesthetic needs. The result is a warm home that responds its orientation, connects more successfully with the outdoor areas and modernises the internal feel through the use of natural clear finishes and splashes of colour.
Located in one of the original garden suburbs of Sydney this turn of the century home had been extended over time with limited consideration of the existing dwelling. The clients brief was to realise the full potential of the site, focussing more on the ample rear yard space whilst maintaining the original character of the dwelling. Our focus concentrated on improving the sequence through the home with a strong visual link from front to back. A deliberate change in finish and play with light creates a legible delineation between the original home and the modern rear addition. The home was extended to include a large kitchen and living area with a secret loft sleeping zone. The result is a home that clearly identifies the new from the old internally, but sensitively connects externally through its materiality and proportion.
