House at Four Mile Creek

Hunter Valley, 2010

The house is located on the fringe of suburbia and looks out over the Four Mile Creek wetlands and farmlands beyond. The materiality of the house draws upon the context of agricultural construction and the design embodies the pure modularity of the materials selected. Dimensions and setouts favour the use of full sheets, structural members sizes, full tiles, boards widths, decking and glazing suites rigourously. The construction of the project was a collaborative effort whereby I worked closely with the builder. Ideas were tried and tested and the drawings evolved as ideas and construction techniques were examined. This experience has increased my appreciation for the tectonic nature of architecture, the practicalities of the ‘making’ of architecture and exemplifies what can be achieved by collaborative and co-operative efforts between Architect, Builder and Client.
