eco projects

  • Kurrajong Hills

    Our brief for this project was to design a home for the future - one which would accommodate a growing family and their changing needs. 'We definitely don't want a shoebox '. The clients liked our suggestion to separate the living and sleeping zones, to create outdoor spaces as well as indoor rooms, and so the 2 main pavilions were born. With the entry link located between the pavilions, this allowed for a layered approach, a slow reveal of the spaces. The key to this design was a strong emphasis on minimising ongoing maintenance and energy costs, using passive solar design and prefinished materials which will age gracefully through the years.

  • Denistone
    NSW

    Sophie and Ross' existing double brick home provided the space they needed, but it was dark, the kitchen was very outdated and there was no easy access to their leafy backyard. Our brief was to design a beautiful new kitchen, deck, carport and laundry area and provide an intimate connection to a new courtyard and veggie gardens. Consideration of the neighbours was also important, in this quiet suburban setting.

  • Lennox Head

    Located a couple of hundred metres from the beach, our brief was to design two adjoining luxury beachside homes to embrace the spectacular views of the coast from every level. The design needed to be timeless, and sit comfortably within an established and premier area of this relaxed coastal town. It was important to use the highest quality materials and construction techniques throughout, minimising ongoing maintenance, and ensuring a lasting legacy for Lennox Head.
