swansea heads residence

Located at Swansea Heads, NSW, this project involved the demolition of a small existing residence and the design and construction of a new residence that is more suited to the site and the needs of the client. Taking in the extensive northerly views out over the ocean and Lake Macquarie, the design utilised passive solar and ventilation in all rooms.

The scale of the residence was very much informed by its context and the functions required within. It pushes back into the slope to keep the overall height down and the uses various roof planes to reduce the overall scale.

merewether residence

This project involved the overall re-planning of the ground floor and all external spaces for this existing two storey house. The rear garage was reworked and joined to the existing house to make for a large flowing living space, kitchen and dining area which opens out onto a new pool and landscaped yard. What was a segregated and pokey layout is now a highly functional and flowing family house. . Images: Liz Kalaf Photography

cooks hill residence

This project involved the removal of an out-of-place rear lean-to and reworking of the rear portion of a three storey heritage terrace located in Cooks Hill. The project presented several challenges including a 4m wide block, restrictive existing ceiling levels, basement level and ageing original brickwork. The aim was to re-orientate the middle level of the dwelling to address the sunny rear courtyard by moving the kitchen and bathroom to the back of the house
