mosman cottage makeover

project description
As part of a development to create 2 new townhouses on an existing site, the original cottage was also remodeled with contemporary additions to the north facing rear garden. The cottage was retained and restored within the streetscape to contain the bedrooms while new open plan living areas were added over two levels facing in to the garden at the rear. A sawtooth roof form allows light to enter deep into the plan and views of the sky from all areas of the living spaces.

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.
