cremorne laneway

project description
This infill project on a subdivided rear yard in Cremorne adds a compact new house on a block at the intersection of two laneways. The compressed pitched roof form expressed in the streetscape adds a playful interpretation of traditional forms into the urban character within this area which is undergoing a change of identity. The plan provides a home with significant amenity in a compact built envelope while the roof form creates a sense of delight in the living areas at the rear.

smiths lake house

project description

Set on a sloping site above Smiths Lake, this weekender is divided into living and sleeping pavilions stepping down the site and connected by a butterfly roof covered stair.

Envisaged as a luxuriously simple getaway, the design is a low cost, low impact solution to a sensitive and beautiful location.

The location is within a flame zone bushfire area so the building is designed to minimise fire damage including fire protection sprinklers on the roof which can also cool the house when needed with collected rainwater.
